Scott presents an interview with Producer Grant Stern and Princeton Professors Kevin M. Kruse and Julian Zelizer, who are co-authors of the new book “Fault Lines: A History of the United States Since 1974″ and explain how Trump’s rise fits into decades of Republican party politics.
Stern caught up with them at the Miami Book Fair this past December to talk about their book, and the sad state of American politics today and how we got here. Kruse and Zelizer are both political historians who used to teach a course based on this material at Princeton University where they both still teach today. This podcast traces the history of American politics, starting in 1974 and focusing on the rise of the far-right in the Republican party beginning with Ronald Reagan’s insurgency through today, they deliver the unique insights about Trump’s America that you’ll usually find on MSNBC or CNN.
