Joshua Green’s bestselling book, Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency, was included in the New York Times Critics’ Top Books of 2017.

Green’s book, which features Bannon as a central figure, was added to the list by Times critic Janet Maslin, who describes it as:

A fair and fascinating portrait of Steve Bannon that explains two crucial things: who he is and how he got that way. Green traces the formation of Bannon’s basic beliefs, and finds the roots of the bellicose worldview that helped get President Trump elected. Filled with candid Bannon commentary about Bannon, it’s required reading for anyone interested in the future.

Maslin links to a Times review of Green’s book by virulently hostile #NeverTrump critic Bret Stephens.
