Online Book Chat: How Government Built America

Responsive Government Defending Safeguards Public Participation

Join us on Wednesday, June 26 at 11 a.m. Eastern for an author discussion and Q&A with Member Scholars Sid Shapiro and Joe Tomain promoting their new book, How Government Built America.

Register now.

As conservatives like to tell our history, America became “great” through individualism, self-reliance, and a small government that stayed out of everybody’s way. For them, these are the values that have always been, and should always be, part of our national DNA.

But that’s not the case, as Shapiro and Tomain lay out in How Government Built America. In this webinar, the book’s authors will share their research and insights about the government’s crucial role in building environmental policy, strengthening social safety nets, and entrenching the goals of social movements into public policy. They’ll be joined by Rogan Kersh of New York University.
