      EVENT DETAILS
      The Lost Soul of the American Presidency

      Join Stephen Knott, a professor of national security affairs at the United States Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, to discuss his new book, The Lost Soul of the American Presidency. In it, he contends that the American presidency is not what it once was. Nor what it was meant to be. Taking on an issue as timely as Donald Trump’s latest tweet and old as the American republic, the distinguished presidential scholar documents the devolution of the American presidency from the neutral, unifying office envisioned by the framers of the Constitution into the demagogic, partisan entity of our day. The conversation will be moderated by the Miller Center's Russell Riley. Book sale and signing to follow.
