NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From an award-winning journalist at The Atlantic, these searing essays make a damning case that cruelty is not merely an unfortunate byproduct of the Trump administration but its main objective and the central theme of the American project. “No writer better demonstrates how American dreams are so often sabotaged by American history. Adam Serwer is essential.”—Ta-Nehisi Coates “Trump summoned the most treacherous forces in American history and conducted them with the ease of a grand maestro.” Like many of us, Adam Serwer didn’t know that Donald Trump would win the 2016 election. But over the four years that followed, the Atlantic staff writer became one of our most astute analysts of the Trump presidency and the volatile powers it harnessed. The shock that greeted Trump’s victory, and the subsequent cruelty of his presidency, represented a failure to confront elements of the American past long thought vanquished. In this searing collection, Serwer chronicles the Trump administration not as an aberration but as an outgrowth of the inequalities the United States was founded on. Serwer is less interested in the presidential spectacle than in the ideological and structural currents behind Trump’s rise—including a media that was often blindsided by the ugly realities of what the administration represented and how it came to be. While deeply engaged with the moment, Serwer’s writing is also haunted by ghosts of an unresolved American past, a past that torments the present. In bracing new essays and previously published works, he explores white nationalism, myths about migration, the political power of police unions, and the many faces of anti-Semitism. For all the dynamics he examines, cruelty is the glue, the binding agent of a movement fueled by fear and exclusion. Serwer argues that rather than pretending these four years didn’t happen or dismissing them as a brief moment of madness, we must face what made them possible and continues to endure. Unless we confront these toxic legacies, the fragile dream of American multiracial democracy will remain vulnerable to the forces that have nearly destroyed it time and again.

This book isn't meant to exchange the main book but to function as a companion thereto, it's meant to strengthen your reading experience!! WHY BUY THIS BOOK: * Save time by reading this summary * economize by buying this summary * Gain more in-depth knowledge ABOUT THE ORIGINAL BOOK "Trump gathered the most nefarious forces in American history and led them with the ease of a grand maestro." Like many folks, Adam Serwer didn't know that Donald Trump would win the 2016 election. But over the four years that followed, the Atlantic staff writer became one among our most astute analysts of the Trump presidency and therefore the volatile powers it harnessed. The shock that greeted Trump's victory, and therefore the subsequent cruelty of his presidency, represented a failure to confront elements of the American past long thought vanquished. In this searing collection, Serwer chronicles the Trump administration not as an aberration but as an outgrowth of the inequalities us was founded on. Serwer is a smaller amount curious about the presidential spectacle than within the ideological and structural currents behind Trump's rise--including a media that was often blindsided by the ugly realities of what the administration represented and the way it came to be. While deeply engaged with the instant, Serwer's writing is additionally haunted by ghosts of an unresolved American past, a past that torments this. In bracing new essays and previously published works, he explores white nationalism, myths about migration, the political power of police unions, and therefore the many faces of anti-Semitism. For all the dynamics he examines, cruelty is that the glue, the binding agent of a movement fueled by fear and exclusion. Serwer argues that instead of pretending these four years didn't happen or dismissing them as a quick moment of madness, we must face what made them possible. Without acknowledging and confronting these toxic legacies, the delicate dream of yank multiracial democracy will remain susceptible to another ambitious demagogue.

Medieval Cruelty

This mode of reference to the heretics served a double purpose. The extremely violent means used to suppress these heresies were presented as a form of retaliation, even self-defense, against the cruelty of the heretics.

The Middle Ages are often thought of as an era during which cruelty was a major aspect of life, a view that stems from the anti-Catholic polemics of the Reformation. Daniel Baraz makes the striking discovery that the concept of cruelty, which had been an important issue in late antiquity, received little attention in the medieval period before the thirteenth century. From that point on, interest in cruelty increased until it reached a peak late in the sixteenth century. Medieval Cruelty's extraordinary scope ranges from the writings of Seneca to those of Montaigne and draws from sources that include the views of Western Christians, Eastern Christians, and Muslims. Baraz examines the development of the concept of cruelty in legal texts, philosophical treatises, and other works that attempt to discuss the nature of cruelty. He then considers histories, martyrdom accounts, and literary works in which cruelty is represented rather than discussed directly. In the wake of the intellectual transformations of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, an increasing focus on the intentions motivating an individual's acts rekindled the discussion of cruelty. Baraz shows how ethical thought and practice about cruelty, which initially focused on external forces, became a tool to differentiate internal groups and justify violence against them. This process is evident in attacks on the Jews, in the peasant rebellions of the later Middle Ages, and in the Wars of Religion.

Buy now to get the main key ideas from Adam Serwer's The Cruelty Is the Point In The Cruelty Is the Point (2021), Adam Serwer provides a thorough analysis of the past, present, and future of Donald Trump’s America. He examines the challenges America faces and studies the social and ideological factors that led to Trump’s presidency and that will always impact American society. Racism, injustice, and violence have always afflicted American society. However, in recent years, the United States has suffered a great deal because of Trump. His hatred for Blacks, Jews, Muslims, and Mexicans, in addition to his failure to contain the Covid-19 pandemic, exacerbated the disdain that much of the public feels for him. As a result, voters kicked him out of the White House, proving that he never ceases to do what he’s best at: making things worse.

Mar&ía de Zayas y Sotomayor (1590&–1650?) published two collections of novellas, Novelas amorosas y exemplares (1637) and Desenga&ños amorosos (1647), which were immensely popular in her day. During the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Victorian and bourgeois sensibilities exiled her &“scandalous&” works to the outer fringes of serious literature. Over the last two decades, however, she has gained an enthusiastic and ever-expanding readership, drawing intense critical attention and achieving canonical status as a major figure of the Spanish Golden Age. In this first comprehensive study of Zayas&’s prose, Margaret R. Greer explores the relationship between narration and desire, analyzing both the &“desire for readers&” displayed by Zayas in her Prologue and the sexual desire that drives the telling within the novellas themselves. Greer examines Zayas&’s narrative strategies through the twin lenses of feminist and psychoanalytic theory. She devotes close attention to the weight of Renaissance literary traditions and the role of Zayas&’s own cultural context in shaping her work. She discusses Zayas&’s biography and the reception of her publications; her advocacy of women&’s rights; her conflictive loyalty to an aristocratic, patriarchal order; her crafting of feminine tales of desire; and her erasure of the frontiers between the natural and supernatural, indeed, between love and death itself. In so doing, Greer offers an expansive analysis of this recently rediscovered Golden Age writer.

‘Pick up Hilary Bonner at your peril - you won’t be able to put her down’ - Val McDermidA twenty-five-year old murder, a missing girl, and a fatal attraction in a small seaside town...It is the first Sunday in August 1970. Another beautiful day in a summer that is burning itself to a horrifying close. A lone swimmer, Jennifer Stone, strikes out from the shore of Pelham Bay, deep into the blue. With her eyes closed against the sun’s sparkle, she floats blissfully into the rigid corpse of a young woman in a tattered red dress. The next day, a local girl disappears. She is never found, and both investigations are closed. Twenty-five years later, Jennifer, by now a Fleet Street journalist at the top of her game, returns to visit her mother’s home in Pelham Bay. Upon opening the local newspaper, she discovers that the failed investigations have been reopened. Back in London, a high-flying government minister reads the same story and his world is shaken. What happened that blazing August a quarter of a century ago will shape both his and Jennifer’s futures, as intense tragedy is resolved and a long-buried mystery comes to light. The Cruelty of the Morning is a tale of dangerous obsessions, small-town secrets and a destructive, mesmerising love affair. Hilary Bonner’s powerful debut novel caused a storm in the then relatively cosy world of crime fiction when it was first published in 1995. Indeed the sexual content was so strong that Hilary was asked to tone it down - the first time in their hundred-year-plus history that her publishers Heinemann had made such a request of a first-time author. ‘Hilary Bonner’s secret is that as a top journalist she's been there, seen it close up and asked the crucial questions. She plots with pace, passion and that marvellous ability to keep you turning the pages long after you meant to put out the light’ - Peter Lovesey, bestselling crime writer ‘A darkly erotic thriller. Mesmerising
