P&P Live! Sasha Issenberg — THE ENGAGEMENT - with Amy Walter

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, June 1, 2021 - 8:00pm

On June 26, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that state bans on gay marriage were unconstitutional, making same-sex unions legal across the United States. But the road to that momentous decision was much longer than many know. In this definitive account, Sasha Issenberg vividly guides us through same-sex marriage’s unexpected path from the unimaginable to the inevitable.

This richly detailed narrative follows the coast-to-coast conflict through courtrooms and war rooms, bedrooms and boardrooms, to shed light on every aspect of a political and legal controversy that divided Americans like no other. Following a cast of characters that includes those who sought their own right to wed, those who fought to protect the traditional definition of marriage, and those who changed their minds about it, The Engagement is certain to become a seminal book on the modern culture wars.

Amy Walter is the National Editor of The Cook Political Report where she provides weekly analysis of the issues, trends and events that shape the political environment. She is also the Host of WNYC’s The Takeaway: Politics with Amy Walter, and a political analyst for the PBS NewsHour.
