The Rise and Fall of America’s Highest Office

A Book Talk with Jeremi Suri
Date: September 15, 2017
Time: 12:00 – 1:30 PM
Location: Mortara Center for International Studies | 3600 N St NW

The American presidency remains the most powerful office in the world, despite the current chaos. The president can bomb more places, spend more money, and influence more people than any other figure in history. Celebrated presidential historian Jeremi Suri delivers a new history of the American presidency from the founding era to the present day, arguing that the early successes of the office created dangerous temptations and unrealistic expectations for recent leaders. Suri shows how the history of the presidency explains our current chaos, and possible paths forward.
