The book has a new introduction as well, placing it in the context of Donald Trump's authoritarian-friendly presidency, the very sort of challenge to liberal democracy the book forewarned of.
I'm not doing a paperback book tour, but I have a few upcoming media appearances and public talks, starting with being the guest today on KUER's Radio West -- that's Utah Public Radio -- talking about the book's prequel, American Nations. I'll also be at St. Joseph's College in Standish, Maine discussing American Character on April 24 and giving a keynote on the same at the Q Ideas conference in Nashville on April 27.
I am an award-winning journalist and author of American Nations, American Character, Ocean's End, The Lobster Coast, and The Republic of Pirates. I'm a staffer at the Portland Press Herald, where I won a 2012 George Polk Award for my investigative reporting and was named a 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist.
