Professor / Instructor / Speaker: GERALD SEIB

Gerald F.

Seib, who appears often on networks such as CNBC, Fox Business Network, and the BBC as a commentator on Washington affairs, was formerly the Journal's Washington bureau chief. His weekly column, "Capital Journal," analyzes politics, national affairs, and foreign policy.

 

In the book, he discusses major and formative events and issues during the 40-year political era bookended by the presidencies of Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump.

 

Seib has won numerous awards for his journalism and was part of the team from the Journal that won the 2001 Pulitzer Prize in the "breaking news" category for its coverage of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. In 2004, the William Allen White School of Journalism at the University of Kansas – his alma mater – named him the 2005 William Allen White Foundation's national citation winners. He also won the Loeb lifetime achievement award for contributions to business and financial journalism in 2012.
