Richard Striner, associate professor of history at Washington College, will appear on the Marc Steiner Show on WJHU, 88.1 FM, at 1 p.m., Friday, June 23.
He will be discussing his new book, The Civic Deal, and responding to calls from the audience.
In The Civic Deal, Striner presents a philosophy for reinvigorating government stewardship in American public life. He advocates a melding of conservative and liberal ideas and values to create effective and far-reaching public policies.
James MacGregor Burns, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "Roosevelt: The Lion and the Fox," says, "I greatly admire The Civic Deal because of the way it has brought together grand intellectual and political traditions in American history and applied them effectively to problems today."
