Frank J. DiStefano - The Next Realignment: Why America's Parties Are Crumbling and What Happens Next — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, July 10, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Putting today’s disquieting political scene in the wider context of the history of American politics, DiStefano, a former congressional aide and veteran of political campaigns including Giuliani’s 2008 presidential bid, argues that we’re in a period of realignment. Looking at events including the clash between Hamilton’s Federalists and Jefferson’s Democratic-Republicans, the rise of Andrew Jackson, the collapse of the Whigs, the rise of William Jennings Bryan, and the formation of the New Deal party system, DiStefano shows that what we are experiencing today is a period of destruction and rebirth in which old political coalitions decay and new parties rise to replace them.
