Neal Gabler & David S. Brown: A Conversation
Sunday, November 20 @ 11:00 am
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, Fl 33132 United States
With Against the Wind: Edward Kennedy and the Rise of Conservatism, 1976 – 2009, Neal Gabler completes his magisterial biography of Ted Kennedy and also unfolds the epic, tragic story of the fall of liberalism and the destruction of political morality in America. Against the Wind sheds new light on a revered figure of American politics and on the country’s current existential crisis. David S. Brown‘s timely The First Populist: The Defiant Life of Andrew Jackson positions the seventh president of the United States firmly in the forefront of the country’s populist tradition. A self-defined champion of “farmers, mechanics, and laborers,” Jackson railed against the established ruling order, leaving a legacy of division, dissent, and partisanship that has come to define our current times.
