2018 Donald J. Sutherland Lecture: Relic: How Our Constitution Undermines Effective Government --And Why We Need a More Powerful Presidency

The 2018 Donald J. Sutherland Lecture presents Relic: How Our Constitution Undermines Effective Government --And Why We Need a More Powerful Presidency by William G. Howell, Sydney Stein Professor in American Politics at University of Chicago. Our government is failing us. From health care to immigration, from the tax code to climate change, our political institutions cannot deal effectively with the challenges of modern society. Why the dysfunction? Contemporary reformers single out the usual suspects, including polarization and the rise in campaign spending. But what if the roots go much deeper, to the nation's founding?  Co-authored with Terry Moe, Relic is a provocative and essential book for our era of political dysfunction and popular despair. It sheds new light on what is wrong with our government and what can be done about it, challenging us to reconsider the very foundation of the American experiment.

 

The Donald J. Sutherland Lecture is named for the former Hofstra trustee who endowed the annual event.
