Eminent political scientist Robert Putnam discusses his book, The Upswing, with co-author Shaylyn Romney Garrett, exploring the economic, social, and political trends over the past century that brought us from an “I” society to a “We” society and then back again. Putnam and Romney will also discuss how we can learn from that experience to become a stronger, more unified nation. Jeffrey Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, moderates.
