This book unpacks the developing new world order in an era of politics that seemingly eschews globalization and international cooperation. As leaders around the world are using more nationalistic rhetoric, they are backing those words up with policies that are dividing the population and bringing an end to the diverse, multicultural, and postmodern aspects of the era of globalization. This does not bode well for international politics and cooperation on issues of grave concern such as global terrorism, climate change, and of course, the COVID-19 pandemic.

This book would be one of the first texts published in 2021 that details the aftermath of the 2020 election, and foreshadowing events to come based on the outcome of the election in the USA and progression of politics (namely nationalism/isolationism) afterwards. Global politics have been shifting at an alarming rate under the Trump administration and other leaders around the world who govern in the same ideological bent.

This book is especially of interest to political science departments, those interested in the 2020 campaign, international relations scholars/students and more.
