“This is a remarkable and, indeed, unprecedented moment in American history. Donald Trump is a unique figure, one whose presidency will shape the nation – and the world – for generations.
What does he know? How does he think? How does he make decisions? What does the past tell us? These are key, urgent, consuming questions.”– Jon Meacham
A presidential historian, author, and contributing editor at TIME, Jon Meacham draws from both the right and the left in a non-partisan view of how the president governs and what his actions mean for America and the world.
One of America's most prominent public intellectuals, Meacham is a skilled raconteur with a depth of knowledge about politics, religion, and current affairs.
His Pulitzer Prize-winning book, American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House, is a definitive portrait of a president who forever changed the American presidency – and America itself. In “The Long View,” his column for The New York Times Book Review, Meacham “looks back at books that speak to our current historical and cultural moment.”
