The iPINIONS Journal: 2020 in Real Time by Anthony Livingston Hall takes readers through the tumultuous events of one of the most painful years in modern history. This book offers incisive and compelling, often thought-provoking, commentaries on issues and events that occurred throughout the year, including Trump’s foreign policy in Africa and the Middle East, his betrayal of the Venezuelans, the events in Asia like social unrest, China’s continuous reach for Hong Kong, the Brexit Deal and its implications for European politics, and the migration crisis in Europe. Most of the book focuses on events in the United States, especially the Presidential Elections and the damaging rhetoric to overturn election results. The book features commentaries on the Black Lives Matter Movement, the murder of George Floyd, and other sensitive topics that are characteristic of 2020.
Anthony Livingston Hall is one of the finest critics and commentators of contemporary social and political events, writing in a style that is fluid and a voice that is strong and opinionated. He is well-read and comes across as an expert in his field. The book compels readers to confront some of the controversial players of the year. His take on Covid-19 and its political implications is thought-provoking. This book opened my eyes to the sophistication of the political game, and it will be interesting for readers to see how politicians take advantage of social events and how they twist narratives to suit their political agendas, manipulating the public. The iPINIONS Journal: 2020 in Real Time features a profusion of excerpts from notable newspapers, including the New York Times, The Associated Press, Axios, and many others. While this is an informative and thought-provoking book, it is equally engaging and hugely entertaining.
