IBES 130 (Carmichael Auditorium), 85 Waterman Street, Providence, RI 02912

In his new book, The Fight to Vote, Waldman takes a succinct and comprehensive look at a crucial American struggle: the drive to define and defend government based on “the consent of the governed,” offering a current, readable history of voting rights in the United States. Waldman traces the full story from the Founders’ debates to today’s challenges: a wave of restrictive voting laws, partisan gerrymanders, and the flood of campaign money unleashed by Citizens United. Amid this topsy-turvy election season, Waldman’s book is a needed reminder that voting rights have never been – and are still not – a guarantee.
