Join GU Politics for a discussion with E.J. Dionne and Norman Ornstein on their new book, One Nation after Trump: A Guide for the Perplexed, the Disillusioned, the Desperate, and the Not-Yet Deported. In the book, the award-winning authors explain Trump’s rise and the danger his administration poses to our free institutions. They also offer encouragement to the millions of Americans now experiencing a new sense of citizenship and engagement and argue that our nation needs a unifying alternative to Trump’s dark and divisive brand of politics ― an alternative rooted in a New Economy, a New Patriotism, a New Civil Society, and a New Democracy.
E.J. Dionne is a senior fellow at The Brookings Institution and University Professor in the Foundations of Democracy and Culture at Georgetown University, where he teaches in the McCourt School of Public Policy and the Government Department. Dionne is the author of six other books, including Why the Right Went Wrong: Conservatism – From Goldwater to Trump and Beyond and Why Americans Hate Politics, which won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and was a National Book Award nominee. Dionne is a regular political analyst for MSNBC, NPR’s All Things Considered, and ABC News’ This Week.
Norman Ornstein is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), where he studies politics, elections, and the US Congress. He is a cohost of AEI’s Election Watch series, a contributing editor and columnist for National Journal and The Atlantic, a BBC News election analyst, and the chairman of the Campaign Legal Center.
