Political Rewind: Leadership in Turbulent Times

Nov 21, 2018

On this special edition of Political Rewind, we take a deep dive into American history with presidential biographer Doris Kearns Goodwin.


In her new book, “Leadership in Turbulent Times,” Goodwin recounts pivotal moments in the lives of four presidents – Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson, and explores how they maneuvered through crises that may have brought down lesser figures.

Goodwin says that while she began researching her book some 5 years ago, long before Donald Trump appeared on the political landscape, her book has great relevance today.
