Lozada is all about the meaning and the consequences of Trump’s rise to power, which is why he then pivots to a book published before Trump took office. Why Presidents Fail is by Elaine Kamarck, who lectures on public policy at Harvard and is a Brookings fellow in Washington. We’re not all in the gutter, laughing as authors land punches, making Trump see stars. In a low period for American democracy, Lozada aims high. In doing so, he rightly considers a host of books which are very much not Chaos Chronicles – which, on the face of it, are not actually about Trump at all.
