Thomas B. Edsall


Thomas B. Edsall is a New York Times columnist on strategic and demographic trends in American politics who previously covered national politics for the Washington Post and was the holder of the Joseph Pulitzer II and Edith Pulitzer Moore Chair at Columbia University’s Graduate school in Journalism. His latest book is Building Red America: The New Conservative Coalition and the Drive for Permanent Power is a powerful examination of the present and future of American politics. Edsall reveals how the Republican Party has gained a long-term institutional advantage that allows it to shrug off apparent setbacks like the 2006 elections. Building Red America takes us deeper than any previous book into the operations of the power brokers and issues that galvanize voters.
