Andrew Hartman and the Culture Wars

How did a black man without electoral experience become a leading Republican candidate? How did a woman become the frontrunner in a presidential election? How did the Republican Party emerge as anti-intellectual? How did the U.S. become so polarized over social and cultural issues, in what is known as the culture wars?

In the eight episode of Campaign Context, Professor Andrew Hartman (Illinois State University) discusses the importance of the culture wars in American politics. Professor Hartman is a leading scholar on American intellectual history, and his most recent book is called A War for the Soul of America: A History of the Culture Wars. He is also the author of Education and the Cold War: The Battle for the American School, and one of the founders of the USIH blog.
