Theda Skocpol is one of sharpest and most interesting minds in the USA when it comes to understanding the policy underpinnings of the US welfare state. What really sets her apart, though, is combining that grasp of the formal policy issues with the politics which really drives the future or non-future of political reform in the US. She was an author we read back when I was an American History graduate student in the 90s and I was honored later to get to know her as a regular email correspondent.
In January she published this fascinating and important paper on the politics of global warming in the USA.
And now she’s agreed to join us for a Live Chat tomorrow afternoon at 5:30 PM at TPMPrime. If you’re a member, you can submit your questions here now.
Please join us. This is really a treat.
