PozycjaKrakowskie Studia Międzynarodowe 2021, nr 1 (XVIII), Donald Trump’s Presidency – the Unfinished Rebellion(Oficyna Wydawnicza AFM, 2021) Bryk, Andrzej; Rabkin, Jeremy; Sadowski, Mirosław Michał; Dadak, Kazimierz; Domaradzki, Spasimir; Wolfe, ChristopherFrom introduction: "Donald Trump’s one term presidency is over. Its end coincided with the COVID-19 pandemic which shook not only the health but politics as well and forced everyone to ask a question how it warped perceptions of the American electorate as far as successes and failures of Trump’s presidency were concerned. One could also easily define the election of 2020 as a referendum over Trump himself, a man who had, as someone said “an exhausting penchant for saying the wrong things” at the wrong time, including the pandemic time, in much the same way as his rival Joe Biden had a life-long penchant for gaffes. But whatever Trump’s individual faults and merits, his victory was a consequence of a growing sense of destabilisation, breakdown of solidarity, growing ‘homelessness’ of millions of people in response to liberal globalism’s dysfunctions and a corresponding rise of the so-called “populist” rebellions. They caught global liberal establishment firmly entrenched both internationally and in their own countries by surprise provoking vitriolic attacks causing deep polarizations especially in America divided against itself as never before."(...) PozycjaThe Emerging Sino-American Cold War(Oficyna Wydawnicza AFM, 2021) Dadak, KazimierzThe Donald Trump presidency ushered in a new era of Sino-American relations. Under Trump, American policies towards the Asian Giant evolved from antagonistic and confrontational to seemingly close and warm to eventually turn into an open economic and political conflict. The present “decoupling” of the two economies initiated by the Trump administration may be seen as an attempt to divide the world into two camps and this process may shape global politics, economics, and military affairs for decades to come. The emerging struggle for world dominance has features resembling the Soviet-American cold war. But the Soviet Union posed only a major military and ideological threat while China is quickly becoming an economic superpower and uses this strength to pry out entire regions from the American sphere of influence. China has created international trade and financial structures that challenge the dominance of the American-led World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. The Asian competitor is also taking steps to replace the U.S. dollar with its own currency in international markets.
