Fractured Republic panel including Peter Trubowitz, Yuval Levin, Cheryl Schonhardt-Bailey and Michael McQuarrie

The Fractured American Republic and the Possibilities for Political Renewal

As part of the 2017 LSE Literary Festival, Yuval Levin discussed his new book, The Fractured Republic. Levin's talk covered how US politics are failing 21st-century Americans as both parties are blind to how America has changed over the past half century and why the dysfunctions of the nation's fragmented national life will need to be answered by the strengths of its decentralized, diverse, dynamic character.

As a leading conservative thinker in the US, Levin’s essays and articles have appeared in numerous publications including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, Commentary, and others. He is a contributing editor of National Review and The Weekly Standard, a senior editor of EPPC’s journal The New Atlantis. Before joining EPPC, Mr. Levin served on the White House domestic policy staff under President George W. Bush.
