WHAT: Republic of Spin Book Signing co-sponsored by the Emory Department of History
WHEN: Tuesday, February 11, 7:00 p.m.
WHERE: Carter Library


"Spin" is viewed as negatively as anything else in the political forum these days. A leading historian of the presidency and media, however, views spin as an essential part of governing. In his new book, Republic of Spin: An Inside History of the American Presidency, former New Republic editor David Greenberg chronicles White House message managing from Teddy Roosevelt through Barack Obama and uncovers some surprising truths behind the spin.

“In Republic of Spin, David Greenberg opens a new and revealing window on the modern American presidency by showing how the effort to manipulate public opinion has long been a central obsession in the Oval Office. Vivid characters, some very famous and some obscure, bring this important story to life and enlighten us about what presidents can and cannot accomplish.”
--Jeffrey Toobin, author of The Oath and The Nine
