The revealing inside story of the partnership between Steve Bannon and Donald Trump-and the key to understanding the rise of the alt-right, the fall of Hillary Clinton, and the hidden forces that drove the greatest upset in American political history

The shocking elevation of Steve Bannon to head Donald Trump"s flagging presidential campaign on August 17, 2016, hit political Washington like a thunderclap. An ex-Goldman Sachs banker with apocalyptic views, Bannon was a bomb-throwing pugilist who"d never run a campaign; was despised by Democrats and Republicans alike; and had a profile as head of the incendiary Breitbart News that guaranteed terrible headlines. The move seemed borne of Trump"s primal rage over a race he looked certain to lose. Trump looked like he was going to burn it all down-and take the GOP with him. Yet Bannon"s hard-edged ethnonationalism and his elaborate years-long plot to destroy Hillary Clinton, paved the way for Trump"s unlikely victory. Trump became the exponent of a dark but powerful worldview that dominated the airwaves and spoke to voters whom others couldn"t see. His campaign was the final phase of a populist insurgency that had been building up for years. Bannon, its inscrutable mastermind, believed it was the culmination of a hard-right global uprising. For years, Bannon had been searching for a vessel for his populist-nationalist ideas. He"d found a patron in the reclusive billionaire Robert Mercer, and together they built a machine designed to stop their great enemy, Clinton. At first, Bannon didn"t see that Trump was the figure he was looking for. But he soon discovered that Trump"s great personal force could knock down barriers that impeded other politicians. And Trump seemed to recognize in Bannon a kindred soul who could channel his uncanny political intuition with striking success. Any study of Trump"s rise to the presidency is therefore unavoidably a study of Bannon, too. It"s a story that only happened due to a remarkable confluence of circumstances, many of them driven by the trap Bannon and his allies laid that suddenly snapped shut on Clinton. This book"s climax is the story of how those conditions converged in the fall of 2016. The campaign"s endgame gave us James Comey, Russian hackers, Access Hollywood, and much else; the causes of Trump"s victory and Clinton"s defeat will be endlessly debated. But no one played a more consequential role in causing the storm that led to President Trump than Steve Bannon. To understand Trump's extraordinary rise, you have to begin with Bannon-or else it doesn't make sense. With Devil"s Bargain, the presidential campaign that we will be reckoning with for the rest of our lives has produced its first essential book.

? GAMECHANGE 2016: based on amazing inside sourcing combined with dazzling storytelling flair and first-class analytical brainpower, this book is going to take the media, and readers everywhere, by storm. - Author prominence and media platform: Green is famous for dominating the coverage of Bannon, from the beginning. His long 2015 profile of Bannon became definitive, and cited everywhere. After the election, he was on almost every conceivable news outlet. - Firstest with the Mostest: there may be books on the election out sooner, but nothing within a country mile of the quality, news impact and sheer entertainment value of Joshua Green"s DEVIL"S BARGAIN.
