CRB: How to understand Trump

The Claremont Institute has sent out a year-end message highlighting “the best of 2016” from the Claremont Review of Books. I thought readers who missed these pieces the first time around might enjoy them as we turn the corner to the new year. I am going back to these pieces with the benefit of hindsight as I bide my time in the penalty box. The CRB has also separately compiled pieces on ELECTION 2016. Here are all but one of the “best of” selections with links and annotations (I’m adding dates and putting the annotations in quotes):

THE FLIGHT 93 ELECTION (September 5, 2016):

“In our most-read piece of the year, Publius Decius Mus makes the hard-nosed case for supporting Donald Trump.”

AFTER THE REPUBLIC (September 27, 2016):

“Claremont Institute Senior Fellow Angelo Codevilla argues that the republic established by the founders has likely been lost and ponders where we go from here.”

DONALD TRUMP AND THE AMERICAN CRISIS (July 22, 2016):

“Claremont Institute Senior Fellow John Marini seeks to understand Trump’s incredible appeal.”

THE RISE OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS (November 8, 2016):

“Angelo Codevilla details the history of political correctness from Marx to Trump.”

TRUMP AND THE CONSERVATIVE CAUSE (May 13: 2016):

“Claremont Institute Senior Fellow and CRB Editor Charles Kesler analyzes what Trump means for the future of the conservative movement.”

UNSAFE SPACES (February 25, 2016):

“Claremont Institute Senior Fellow and CRB Senior Editor William Voegeli writes about the silencing of the American mind on our politically correct college campuses.”
