Playing with Fire: How 1968 Transformed American Politics

Lawrence O’Donnell, host of MSNBC’s The Last Word and one of America’s shrewdest political minds, helps us unpack the historical roots of 21st century politics. He joins us with his new book Playing with Fire: The 1968 Election and the Transformation of American Politics, chronicling the tumult of the Nixon era and the human drama of a system—and a country—coming apart at the seams in real time. Nearly 50 years later we find ourselves again in a moment of political uncertainty and crisis, and we reflect with O’Donnell on the seminal 1968 election which he asserts is still shaping our political landscape today. O’Donnell demonstrates his master-class in electioneering and explains how the fallout from Nixon’s election and administration set the stage for American politics as we know it.

Lawrence O’Donnell is the host of ‘The Last Word’ on MSNBC. Formerly an Emmy Award-winning executive producer and writer for The West Wing, O’Donnell also served as senior advisor to Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, chief of staff to the Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works and the Senate Finance Committee. He is the author of Deadly Force and his writing has appeared in The New York Times, Washington Post, and Los Angeles Times.
