Completing an edited volume like the Reading Donald Trump: A Parallax
View of the Campaign and Early Presidency is only possible because of the
intellectual generosity and dedication of the contributors. Therefore,
I would like to extend my sincerest appreciation to all of the very talented
scholars who made this project a reality. I would also like to thank my wife,
Alicia, and my son, Tristan, for their patience and support in the completion
of this volume. Performing research and the writing process are
enterprises of solitude that require the understanding of loved ones.
Conversations that one has with colleagues about specific ideas and how
these ideas should take shape are important components of any writing
project. Therefore, I would like to thank Dr. Sabah Alnasseri for encouraging
me to pursue this specific project during a trip to Baltimore,
Maryland. In a similar vein, I would like to thank Dr. Michael Howard,
Dr. Andrew McMurry, and Dr. Margaret Walton-Roberts for our lively
discussions about “Trumpism” and “America’s Trump.” Finally, I would
like to thank my editor at Palgrave Macmillan, Michelle Chen, and her
editorial assistant, John Stegner, for their commitment to helping bring
this project to fruition.
