The rise of Donald Trump is just one case of a wider phenomenon. To understand contemporary American politics, we must place it in comparative context. In "A Comparative Analysis of Left, Right and Failed Ethnic Nationalism," Dr. Cedric de Leon, associate professor in the Department of Sociology at Tufts University, will compare Trump's economic nationalism with the rise of the Bharatiya Janata Party in India, the Movement for Socialism in Bolivia and the Reform Party in Canada.
