Political Extremism and the 2016 American Presidential Election: A Talk by Dr. Thomas Mann

Mills C, 6:00 PM

On the eve of the 2016 Presidential election, we'll have the opportunity to hear from one of the nation's top experts on elections and the increasing brinksmanship and gridlock in American politics. Dr. Thomas Mann is a resident scholar at UC Berkeley's Institute of Governmental Studies and a former senior fellow at The Brookings Institution. He has published extensively on issues that pertain to gridlock and extremism in American politics. His latest book, entitled "It's Even Worse Than It Looks: How the American Constitutional System Collided With the New Politics of Extremism," was co-authored with Norman Ornstein. It is a New York Times bestseller.  

The event is co-sponsored by the James and Emily Bost Odyssey Professorship of Dr. Kiril Kolev, the W. C. Buthman Endowed Visiting Scholar and Lectureship Program, and the M.E. and Ima Graves Peace Distinguished Professorship of Dr. Jay Barth.

Co-sponsored by the Department of Politics and International Relations. For more information, contact Professor Kiril Kolev at or 501-450-1236.
