In our cover story, “Endgame," a deep-dive exploration of the state of bipartisan criminal justice reform efforts, Kay Whitlock reminds us that conservative support for progressive causes can come with a steep cost. “Between Trump and Putin” looks at both the democratic crises arising in countries where Russian actors have sought to influence elections as well as the less-examined ideological ties binding together this new “Right-Wing International.” “Trumpism and the Unstable Ground of Whiteness," explores the “split-screen” view of White America that, on one side, recalls a mythical past of economic glory, and on the other, the current reality of economic displacement and loss that’s easily blamed on scapegoated “others.” Lastly, populism is explored in a review of John Judis’s recent book, The Populist Explosion.
