It was never supposed happen! Donald Trump was never supposed to survive the Republican primaries. How Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election is the dramatic story of America’s efforts to become more diverse and inclusive gone off the rails. Forget the Comey revelation and other headlines! Winter in America provides a candid acknowledgment about the electorate. No explanation of 2016 presidential election results can begin with anything other than the core problem – the backlash against diversity in the country.

Through deep analysis and research, diversity expert Dr. Shelton J. Goode has reconstructed the key decisions and unseized opportunities, the undiscussable misfires and the unwritten decisions that resulted in the greatest upset in presidential election history.

Drawing on the Dr. Goode’s deep knowledge of social justice and the racial politics from his previous book, the acclaimed Crisis as a Platform for Social Change, Winter in America: The Impact of the 2016 Presidential Election on Diversity in Companies, Communities and the Country will offer an object lesson in how the country’s struggles with its growing diversity resulted in populist fury that manifested itself on both the Right and the Left.

Moving blow-by-blow from the presidential campaign’s divisive start through the bewildering result of election night, Winter in America tells an unforgettable story with urgent lessons both political and personal, filled with revelations that will change the way readers understand just what happened to America on November 8, 2016. And more important – what may lay ahead in the years to come.
