About this Item
- Seasons of Change in America: National Book Festival 2020
- Nicholas Lemann, "Transaction Man: The Rise of the Deal and the Decline of the American Dream" (Farrar, Straus & Giroux), appears in conversation with Rick Perlstein, "Reaganland: America's Right Turn 1976-1980" (Simon & Schuster). Lemann, the dean emeritus at Columbia Journalism School, explains the United States' and the world's great transformation by examining three individuals from FDR's time to Silicon Valley, who epitomized and helped create their eras. Perlstein, in contrast, tells the story of how Reagan happened, tracing conservatives' strategies to gain power and explaining why they endured four decades later in Trump. Moderated by Washington Post veteran columnist Steven Pearlstein.
