On Misdirection: Magic, Mayhem, American Politics
The books under the Atlantic Editions imprint with Zando feature long-form journalism by Atlantic writers devoted to a single topic, drawing from contemporary articles or classic storytelling from the magazine’s rich archive.
A collection of essays from Atlantic staff writer Megan Garber, On Misdirection: Magic, Mayhem, American Politics is a timely treatise on our contemporary American political culture. Using the concept of “misdirection” to argue how attention, boredom, uncertainty, and cynicism have become the disquieting stalwarts of our current political arena, Garber offers readers a new and accessible theory for understanding the lasting power of Donald Trump and his right-wing legions.
