Political commentator E. J. Dionne argues that Americans can't agree on who we are because we can't agree on who we've been. In Our Divided Political Heart: The Battle for the American Idea in an Age of Discontent, he offers both a tour of American history—from the Founding Fathers to Clay and Lincoln, on to Populism, the Progressives, and the New Dealers—and an interpretation of our moment's politics. He reclaims the American idea of the federal government as an active and constructive partner with the rest of society in promoting prosperity, opportunity, and American greatness.
E.J. Dionne, Washington Post columnist, senior fellow at the Brookings Institute and professor at Georgetown University, talks partisan politics, the conversation over Bain Capital, and his new book, Our Divided Political Heart: The Battle for the American Idea in an Age of Discontent.
EVENT: E.J. Dionne will discuss the book at the Players Club (16 Gramercy Park South) on Thursday, May 24 at 7 p.m.
