Free Event Admission
In this engaging and provocative political memoir, Arnold Steinberg provides an insider’s look into the often widely misunderstood history and nature of political conservatism in American politics, ever since its initial stirrings in the 1950s down to why today’s Generation X has begun to turn against big government and political correctness. His Nixon Library presentation will feature commentary about President Nixon’s political career including the opening to China, aide to Israel during the Yom Kippur War, the end of the military draft, and Civil Rights programs.
Steinberg, a strategist and analyst, wrote two classic graduate textbooks on politics and media. He is a veteran of hundreds of national, state, and local political campaigns, including U.S. Senator James L. Buckley of New York. Over several decades, he has been widely published in magazines, newspapers and online. Sternberg has been interviewed for many publications and has been a frequent guest on television and radio programs. He started in broadcasting as a student panelist for Fred Friendly’s Public Broadcasting Laboratory, the precursor for national public television.
