MEDIA REVIEWS
Donald Trump was a boundary-defying presidential candidate and continued to defy conventional norms early in his presidency. This collection of essays and studies assembled by Gina Luttrell helps us make sense of a changing political and journalistic environment in the Trump era, not only in the United States but overseas. From looking at how journalists have covered Trump to Trump's use of Twitter, this book offers vital insights and raises important questions about American politics as we know it and where we are going forward. -- Tom Gallagher, La Salle University
This edited volume offers a comprehensive examination of the ways in which Trump's presidency deviates from political and social norms. Chapters cover Trump's penchant for trolling, the perils of using tweets to conduct domestic and foreign policy, and how media outlets attempt to make sense of it all. It's an important book for political communication researchers and others who want to understand how much political discourse has changed in the last few years. -- John H. Parmelee, University of North Florida, co-author of Politics and the Twitter Revolution
This book is an engaging volume that uses a variety of rigorous analytical approaches to analyze the ways in which candidate and now President Trump has used Twitter. The essays in this volume are impressive and encourage readers to think about the ways in which past, present, and future presidents have or will engage with the media, social media, and the public. The effects of Trump's Twitter use have manifested themselves in diverse spheres that range from the auto industry, foreign policy, and relations with China. This volume also sheds light on the complex dynamics between the way in which Trump portrays the media, and alternatively, the way that the media cover him. This volume richly adds to our knowledge about how Trump uses Twitter, provides researchers with ideas on which they can build, and gives students a framework by which they can gain a better understanding of Trump's Twitter use, including the dynamics of his periodic Twitter Storms. -- Kenneth W. Moffett, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
