Kevin M. Kruse and Julian E. Zelizer - Fault Lines: A History of the United States Since 1974

Upcoming Event
Sunday, January 13, 2019 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

The one thing most Americans agree on is that the country is deeply divided. When and how the fissures came about, however, are subject to debate. For Kruse and Zelizer, both award-winning political historians and frequent media commentators, today’s polarization began in 1974. In that one year the nation faced Watergate and Nixon’s resignation, the pullout from Vietnam with the lingering questions about U.S. involvement in the conflict, the OPEC oil embargo and the chilling glimpse of oil dependency, and the busing riots in Boston. Drawing on their popular Princeton course, the authors trace the social and political fracturing through a wide range of economic, technological, and cultural forces, paying special attention to the role played by cable TV, the internet, and social media.
