Angry White Males as Suffering Subjects

Sampson, Steven LU (2016)
Abstract
How should anthropologists understand the Trump phenomenon? Instead of seeing his supporters as fearful or sick or manipulated, this articles proposes applying concepts of ontology, morality, outsiderism and performance to understand Trump's support. We need to reinsert the study of emotions into our understanding of politics. Trump knew this. We didn't.
