Heather Cox Richardson and the Republican Party

How did the “Party of Lincoln” morph into the party of Nixon’s Southern Strategy? How did the New Deal affect the Republican Party? Is Jeb Bush too moderate for the GOP? And how can we understand Donald Trump’s lead among Republicans?

Episode 11 of Campaign Context features a discussion on the Republican Party with Professor Heather Cox Richardson (Boston College). Richardson is a leading historian on the political and intellectual history of the United States, and the author of five books, including The Death of Reconstruction: Race, Labor, and Politics in the Post-Civil War North, 1865-1901, Wounded Knee: Party Politics and the Road to an American Massacre, and the recent To Make Men Free: A History of the Republican Party. Professor Richardson is also a founder and editor of the online history magazine We’re History.
