Rick Perlstein talked about his book, The Invisible Bridge: The Fall of Nixon and the Rise of Reagan, in which he recounts America’s political and social landscape of the mid-1970s, which was marked by the resignation of President Richard Nixon, the demise of the U.S. supported South Vietnamese government, and a depressed economy. In his book, the author reports that amidst what many considered the end of American exceptionalism, emerged Ronald Reagan, a candidate for the 1976 Republican presidential nomination. Rick Perlstein spoke at the Free Library of Philadelphia. close
