Adirondack Roundtable: Brian Mann, Welcome to the Homeland

Listen to this story
In the second talk in the Adirondack Roundtable series hosted by the Lake Placid Institute, NCPR's Adirondack Bureau Chief Brian Mann examines the American political divide. His view counters the conventional wisdom of red states and blue state. Central to his forthcoming book, Welcome to the Homeland, is the notion that it is the rift between rural and urban voters, and the extra weight given to rural America by the structure of the US Senate and the Electoral College system, that best explains the political success of modern conservatism.

Mann is introduced by Jack Bogle, founder of the Vanguard Group of investment funds.
