In his latest book, Enemy of the People: Trump’s War on the Press, the New McCarthyism, and the Threat to American Democracy, distinguished journalist Marvin Kalb pulls from recent history to prove that the great American experiment would suffer certain failure if not for a free and vigorous press.
Mr. Kalb is currently a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and a senior advisor at the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. His career spans more than 30 years and includes award-winning reporting for both CBS and NBC News as chief diplomatic correspondent, Moscow bureau chief, and anchor of NBC’s “Meet the Press.” He has authored or co-authored 14 books.
Enemy of the People is an eye-opening indictment of President Trump’s efforts to debase and dehumanize our free press, and how it puts the future of America’s democracy in question.
The book will be available for signing.
