Many Americans are worried that the nation’s political parties are crumbling, and author Frank DiStefano is convinced those worries are warranted. But he also sees what’s happening as part of a natural cycle built into the structure of the U.S. from the get-go.
In his latest book, “The Next Realignment: Why America’s Parties Are Crumbling and What Happens Next,” DiStefano explores a variety of factors contributing to the country’s current political environment as well as potential paths forward.
DiStefano joined St. Louis Public Radio’s Jonathan Ahl for an in-depth conversation on Monday's St. Louis on the Air.
