Dr. Robert Watson

If you are a history buff or political junkie, this show is for you. Our guest this week on Writers' Voices, Dr. Robert Watson, has been a professor for 22 years and written over 30 books, two encyclopedia sets and more than 150 book chapters, articles and essays on politics and American History. He has offered political analysis on all the major cable news networks and even appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Dr. Watson is also a newspaper columnist and blogs on Huffington Post.

Watson's latest book, "Affairs of State" divulges secrets and scandals from 1789 to 1900 in the White House. Compared to more recent Presidential scandals - well, as they say, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

We will also be discussing "Lincoln's Enduring Legacy", edited by Watson and two colleagues in 2011.
