Donald Trump and drama always go together. But what are the deeper cultural issues the President is stoking to get re-elected in November? In an epic piece, longtime US political observer Sam Tanenhaus argues that a new civil war is brewing, no matter what the result. Here in the UK a culture war is also bubbling: can we avoid one? Jean Seaton, profiling new BBC Director-General Tim Davie, thinks he might be the man to defend the institution from government attacks. And Tristram Hunt, Director of the V&A, tells us how museums can forge a middle path between acknowledging the sins of the past and keeping faith with trusted institutions. Plus: Hadley Freeman in praise of Germaine Greer, Julian Baggini on a scintillating new biography of Jacques Derrida, and an enchanting love letter to mushrooms.
