LOCAL>> John Judis - The Politics of Our Time

Presented by Commonwealth Club at Streaming Arts

May 18 2021
LOCAL>> John Judis - The Politics of Our Time

Political analyst and author in conversation about his new book with George Hammond

Distinguished political analyst John Judis returns to The Commonwealth Club for a timely discussion on the major political issues that have shaped America’s tumultuous last decade and can be seen around the world.

Over the past five years, Judis has written three books—The Populist Explosion in 2016, The Nationalist Revival in 2018, and The Socialist Awakening in 2020—that have charted the rise of unexpected political movements in the United States and Europe that have grown in impact in the wake of the Great Recession, the conflict with al-Qaeda and ISIS, and encroaching climate change.

These three books have all been updated and combined into a new volume that expands Judis’s focus to include the Trump presidency and the response to the COVID-19 global pandemic. This new book, The Politics of Our Time, is an important guide to understanding the significant currents and emotions that have transformed the world and influenced political parties and politicians on both the Right and Left.

As the United States and Europe look to emerge from the global pandemic, understanding the major political trends that help guide our civic discussion are critical. Please join us for this important conversation.
