Twelve Tables Publishers is a new, innovative, publishing house designed to address the political and social revolution that erupted leading up to, and following, the 2016 presidential election of Donald Trump.
Trump won the election by leading a popular wave of millions of Tea Party activists, Evangelical Christians and Reagan Democrats who demanded a third American Revolution. They wanted to sweep away the vast administrative state that U. S. presidents created to implement their Progressive Era reforms, the New Deal and War on Poverty. This change has implications for the "New Man" in secular Western philosophy versus the virtues of the symbol of the old regime--the great leader.
Donald Trump fits the model of a strong world leader such as George Washington, Harry Truman, Andrew Carnegie and Napoleon Bonaparte. This is in sharp contrast to his predecessor, Barack Obama, who took a back seat in world affairs and deferred to European leaders on foreign policy. If Trump's influence holds, it could spread to European republics. For example Marie Le Pen's movement in France, the Five Star Movement in Italy and euroskeptic parties in the U.K. the Netherlands and Denmark would feel emboldened by Trump's leadership and inaugurate anti-statist policies.
A so-called "purple revolution"--the merging of Democrat (blue America) and Republican (red America-RINOs) into a united purple blend emerged to oppose Trump on the grounds that he represents an authoritarian response to populist protest. The purple revolution is led by Hillary Clinton and former president Barack Obama. They seek to make the Trump administration a short one through George Soros-style street protests and political disruption. And the Democrats and Republican RINOs in Congress are trying to discredit his leadership. Regardless of the outcome, the times presage radical change and scholars must respond to that change or risk being irrelevant.
The press welcomes all points of view and positions pertaining to the state of the American Republic and theories of classical democracy. Critical scholarly analysis on this subject is especially sought and we hope to publish the leading scholarly works to advance our understanding of democracy in the 21st Century.
