KARL ROVE DISCUSSES HIS NEW BOOK
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 6; 1 PM
(Line numbers beginning at noon. Please show your books&co receipt for The Triumph of William McKinley, to get a line number.)
KARL ROVE, author of Courage and Consequences, will discuss his new historical book, The Triumph of William McKinley: Why the Election of 1896 Still Matters. Just in time for the next presidential election and coinciding with the beginning of the primary season, the book offers a fresh look at the 1896 race between Democrat William Jennings Bryan and the man who defeated him and became the 25th president of the United States, Republican William McKinley. Rove argues that the 1896 political environment resembles that of today and therefore much can be learned from it. SIMON & SCHUSTER
Fred Barnes, executive editor of The Weekly Standard, has called Karl “the greatest political mind of his generation and probably of any generation. He knows history, understands the moods of the public, and is a visionary on matters of public policy.” Rove is also known as “The Architect” of President Bush’s 2000 and 2004 campaigns.
