Uprising: The Politics of Protest
In the spring of 2011, mass demonstrations in Wisconsin erupted in opposition to Gov. Scott Walker's attempt to strip public employees of their collective bargaining rights. This week on dialogue, we examine the political ramifications of the protest’s aftermath with a native of Wisconsin, John Nichols. John is The Nation's Washington correspondent and the Associate Editor of The Capital Times in Madison, Wisconsin. He's author of a new book, "Uprising: How Wisconsin Renewed the Politics of Protest from Madison to Wall Street." Kent Hughes, director of the Wilson Center’s Program on America and the Global Economy, also joins the discussion.
