ALLAN J LICHTMAN (bestselling author) and MICHAEL HART (historian/radio host) Joining us on the show this week is our Special Guest - bestselling author, historian and Professor - Allan J. Lichtman! Allan J. Lightman received his PhD from Harvard University in 1973 and is currently Distinguished Professor of History at American University in Washington, D.C. He specializes in American political history and the presidency. Dr. Lichtman has authored or co-authored nine books, and hundreds of scholarly and popular articles. His latest book, "The Case for Impeachment" (Dey Street books, 2017), was an independent bookstore best seller, an bestseller in several academic categories, and a Newsweek, best new book release. Dr. Lichtman's book "FDR and the Jews" (Harvard, 2013, with Richard Breitman), won the National Jewish Book Award in American Jewish History. It was a 2013 New York Times editor's choice, and a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in History. His book, "White Protestant Nation: The Rise of the American Conservative Movement" (Grove/Atlantic 2008), was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award in non-fiction. The Teaching Company produced his video lectures on Great Presidents as part of their "Great Courses" series. Dr. Lichtman is the co-developer of the Keys system that has successfully predicted the outcome of every presidential election since 1984. In September 2016, he defied the conventional wisdom to predict the election of Donald Trump. In early 2016, Rowman & Littlefield published the sixth edition of his Keys book series, "Predicting the Next President: The Keys to the White House 2016". Also joining us on the show this week is our Special Guest - author, historian and radio host - Michael P. Hart! Michael P. Hart is a speaker, writer, historian and host of the popular Conservative Talk Radio program The Michael Hart Show which originates out of Birmingham, AL on Super Station 101. Michael has been interviewed on hundreds of radio and TV programs and for hundreds of newspapers and magazines across the US. On his radio program, Michael delves deeply into the news of the day and infuses his commentary with historical perspective. Many of the most important news stories of the day cannot be completely understood without knowing the history behind the headline. And every day Michael shares his thoughts on not only what is happening in the world, but why and often through the prism of the past. In his book, "Unknown America: Myths and little known oddities about the greatest nation on Earth", a first in a series of books dedicated to setting history straight, Michael uses his love of research to reveal historical inaccuracies that have been falsely taught for decades - as well as little known oddities and bizarre trivia about the greatest nation on earth.
