Authors Julian Zelizer and Kevin Kruse: “Fault Lines”

March 12, 2019, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Princeton professors Julian Zelizer and Kevin Kruse, co-authors of “Fault Lines: A History of the United States Since 1974,” discuss their book which examines the divisive domestic politics of the last 40 years. The pair argue that the mid-1970s saw multiple rifts in the social order which have led to the political polarization we see today.

Kevin Kruse is a professor of history at Princeton University and studies the political, social, and urban/suburban history of 20th century America. Focused on conflicts over race, rights, and religion, he has particular interests in segregation and the civil rights movement, the rise of religious nationalism and the making of modern conservatism.





Julian Zelizer is the Malcolm Stevenson Forbes, Class of 1941 Professor of History and Public Affairs at Princeton University, is a CNN political analyst, and a noted commentator in international and national media on contemporary politics. His weekly “Politics and Polls” podcast with Sam Wang, a professor of molecular biology at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute, provides analysis of the latest political headlines and trends.
