Brexit; regime transitions in the Middle East; the election of Donald Trump; insurgencies in both major American Parties. Politics in the 21st century, both internationally and domestically, seem to be undergoing an historic time of change. Is this time an historic pivot point in politics or merely a brief episodic “bump in the road”? Are such developments signaling a significant political realignment, a time of transition to a new order, or are they simply disruptions of a larger existing order? Given the political chaos and disruption of the last several years, how should political science think about politics in the 21st Century?
