Patrick Andelic and the Democratic Party

Following Hillary Clinton’s defeat, it is a time for soul-searching for the Democratic Party. The modern Democratic Party has always negotiated the relationship between liberalism, progressivism, and identity politics. How have these strands come together since the end of the New Deal coalition?

In episode 22 Patrick Andelic (University of Oxford) talks about the history of the Democratic Party and the internal struggles of the party. Andelic’s work focuses on the congressional Democratic Party in the 1970s and 1980s, and he is currently turning his thesis on the subject into a book. His work has also appeared in The Historical Journal and he is a recurring guest on the American History Too podcast.
