The Politics of Herding Cats: When Congressional Leaders Fail

March 18, 2021 at 4pm


This presentation, followed by a Q&A by Wake Forest’s Dr. Will Walldorf, will provide an in-depth look into Dr. John Lovett’s newly published book The Politics of Herding Cats: When Congressional Leaders Fail (Michigan University Press, 2021). The book explores the interaction between Congress, the mass media, and public policy, focusing on how individual members of Congress can overwhelm leader priorities using media coverage of issues. Dr. Lovett is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Politics & International Affairs at Wake Forest University whose scholarship has focused on the interaction between political institutions and media from both a general perspective and a policy perspective.
