This event has already happened

Shortly prior to this event, the American people will have chosen a new president, whose election will have been almost assuredly due in large measure to “spin,” what Rutgers Professor of History David Greenberg calls “a dizzying, cacophonous whirl of claims and counterclaims.”

In "Republic of Spin," Prof. Greenberg, 2008 recipient of the Institute’s Hiett Prize, traces the rise and eventual dominance of spin in presidential politics, from the ”Public Presidency” of Theodore Roosevelt to the tenure of Barack Obama.

Join Professor Greenberg for what's sure to be a riveting discussion of presidential politics, both yesterday and today.
