The USA has become a stranger to us. Although it has always been a country of contradictions, Donald Trump’s presidency has made clear: fundamentals are shifting, things that until recently appeared to be reliable, are breaking in two. Post Donald Trump, things will not go back to the way they were. In his major book about America, Klaus Brinkbäumer shows us why that is. As editor in chief and long-term USA correspondent of the news magazine Der Spiegel, he knows the country better than most. Over the years, he has spoken to Barack Obama, Dick Cheney or Hillary Clinton, with George Clooney or Bruce Springsteen, with numerous personalities from politics, culture and industry, and held a somewhat taxing telephone conversation with Donald Trump. In his passionate and analytical portrayal of people, places, sentiments, history and stories, he gives a fascinating portrait of a nation that for decades inspired us and which is now in the process of losing its way. The end of this once so reliable relationship will significantly define our future.
