Africa vs North America Vol 2

by Tendai Rinos Mwanaka

In Nationalism: (Mis)Understanding Donald Trump’s Capitalism, Racism, Global Politics, International Trade and Media Wars, Africa VS North America Vol 2, we have 10 essays, 3 fiction pieces, 51 poems, 2 plays from leading and upcoming writers, essayists, academicians and poets from the two regions, Africa and North America and their Diasporas, in these among other countries, USA, Canada, Sweden, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, Botswana, Kenya, UK etc…, coming together to transact around issues to do with the nationalism espoused by Donald Trump. Cornell dissects issues to do with blackness and racism using Fanon’s theories, Nyongesa deals with the Fetishism of Donald Trump’s policies known colloquially as Trumpism, Opicho calls it ‘inoracy’, Donald Trump’s statement, “Shit-hole”, some essayists took to the personal narrative you would find in Mhondera and Kantey’s essays, yet Pravda used the middle ground between playwriting, Filmmaking and the essay form, Ofodile investigates the problematic issue of Boko Horam terrorism in North Nigeria, Bearly looks at capitalism, so does Koffi with his French Language essay which is also translated into English, Ifeachor in his poem has praise for Donald Trump, Hall goes back to apartheid South Africa period and as a direct tangent Matshoba deals with Xenophobia in his letter written from the future. Smith looks at the white supremacist demonstrations, for or against Trump, Thompson and Swanson encourage us to unfocus on Donald Trump, and Thompson rightly blames us for allowing the likes of Donald Trump and the kind of Nationalism and Capitalism he stands for to grow. Thus this collection of writings is rich, robust and very interesting and will be invaluable to scholarship to do with Nationalism, Capitalism, Media freedoms, Global Politics, Racism and International trade.
