Shall We Wake the President?
Presidential historian and former White House aide Tevi Troy examines the evolving role of the president in dealing with calamity and assesses how well or badly many have performed in his new book Shall We Wake the President? Two Centuries of Disaster Management from the Oval Office. On the eve of the election of a new president, he joins Steve Edwards, executive director of the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics and a native Kansas Citian, in a public conversation about the book and the issue.
