He writes frequently for the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, National Review, the Weekly Standard, the Claremont Review of Books, and other publications. The author of six books including a two-volume chronicle of Reagan and his times entitled The Age of Reagan: The Fall of the Old Liberal Order, 1964-1980, and The Age of Reagan: The Conservative Counter-Revolution, 1980-1989, and the Almanac of Environmental Trends. His latest book, Patriotism is Not Enough: Harry Jaffa, Walter Berns, and the Arguments That Redefined American Conservatism, was published in February.

    Great interview! To pick out one tiny part of this really comprehensive current issues fest, I loved what he had to say regarding his experience with his students at Berkeley, and how he’s been involved with bringing speakers from the right to campus. I wish we had a couple hundred professors like him spread around liberal universities.

    Dear Berkeley,”you used to say live and let live…you know you did you know you did you know you did”.

    Nice listen Dave.

    Yes, Steven covered a lot, but this part was very promising. He is working behind the scenes at Berkeley to change the culture. I love how he snuck Charles Murray into his large lecture hall to speak to students after telling his students not to tweet or post on Facebook. Gangsta!

    It was actually somewhat heartening to hear that some of the students there are looking for something other than the uniform liberal pap that they are getting from most professors.

    Just finished this up. Another great interview, Dave.

    Agreed. If we assume all kids are the mind numb antifa-bots, then we miss the large segment of thinkers who are looking to make up their own minds. Thanks JM.

    Thank you for a most informative interview. Would that our liberal schools had more professors like this one.
