Conspiracies and Conspiracy Theories in the Age of Trump

Daniel Hellinger, professor emeritus in the History, Politics, and International Relations (HPIR) department in Webster's College of Arts & Sciences, has published "Conspiracies and Conspiracy Theories in the Age of Trump" with Palgrave MacMillan.

According to one review, “This title is not just a timely look at the swirling conspiracy and counter conspiracy theories involving the 45th President of the United States…it is also a deep dive into the kind of civic and intellectual culture which has produced these theories.”

This exciting book focuses on the constant tension between democracy and conspiratorial behavior in the new global order.

Also in HPIR, Professor Kelly-Kate Pease has published the 6th edition of her widely used text, "International Organizations: Perspectives on Global Governance."

One reviewer says Pease “has produced a wonderful update of International Organizations, clearly explaining five theoretical perspectives in international relations and illustrating how they can be applied to explain the outcomes of real cases, from Brexit to the Syrian conflict.

"A valuable resource for both beginning and advanced students, the book also provides a thorough discussion of the issues facing IOs [international organizations] as well as the positive and negative outcomes of global governance.”
