About this Item

Title

  • The Road to Populism: National Book Festival 2020

Summary

  • Christopher Caldwell, "The Age of Entitlement: America Since the Sixties" (Simon & Schuster), appears in conversation with Thomas Frank, "The People, No: A Brief History of Anti-Populism" (Metropolitan). Caldwell makes the case that the reforms of the 1960s -- intended to make the nation more just and humane -- left many Americans feeling alienated, despised and ready to put an adventurer in the White House. Frank, on the other hand, offers an eye-opening account of populism, the most important and misunderstood movement of our time. Moderated by NPR correspondent Eric Deggans.
