    The Modern Presidency from Kennedy to Trump: Intersection of Politics and Personality

    Lecture presented by William H. Chafe, Duke University. Chafe will examine how personality helped shape the politics of many of our modern presidents. He will look at the presidencies of John F.

He has written 13 books on American history, including a major new overview of 20th century America titled “The Rise and Fall of the American Century,” a history of personality and politics in modern America titled “Private Lives/Public Consequences, Personality and Politics in Modern America,” and a book about the Clintons titled “Bill and Hillary: The Politics of the Personal.”
