Kirstin Downey - Isabella: The Warrior Queen ♦
Politics and Prose, Friday, October 31 at 7pm
Part of a Pulitzer-winning team during her many years at The Washington Post, Downey follows her acclaimed biography of Frances Perkins, The Woman Behind the New Deal, with this compelling portrait of one of history’s most complex leaders. Isabella of Castile (1451-1504) modeled herself on Joan of Arc, but she was hardly a Saint; she unified a country, but expelled its non-Christian people. She sponsored Columbus’s voyages but empowered the Spanish Inquisition. (Nan A. Talese)

Beer and wine will be available.

Anne Sarah Rubin - Through the Heart of Dixie: Sherman's March and American Memory
Politics and Prose, Saturday, November 1 at 1pm
Between November 15 and December 21, 1864, General Sherman and 62,000 Union troops swept through Georgia. Rubin’s study looks closely at the different populations the march affected, from the soldiers who carried it out, to the women, former slaves, and others who witnessed it. Using contemporary accounts in newspapers and private journals as well as later depictions in literature and film, Rubin, author of Shattered Nation and a Maryland history professor, shows how competing perspectives have altered views of the Civil War.

Aaron David Miller - The End of Greatness: Why America Can't Have (and Doesn't Want) Another Great President
Politics and Prose, Sunday, November 2 at 1pm
Is a great leader the same as a good one—and is the president, for instance, more important than the overall system he heads? This thought-provoking work by the Wilson Center distinguished scholar and veteran advisor to secretaries of state, uses a range of historical periods to argue that the increasing focus on the quest for the perfect chief executive distracts from other crucial elements of governence.
