State politics study draws interest
Dr. Tom Eamon
A new book on North Carolina politics by East Carolina University political science professor Dr. Thomas Eamon has triggered significant media interest.
Eamon spoke on WUNC’s “The State of Things” in January (recording available at http://wunc.org/post/transformation-north-carolina-democracy ). He also joined George Olson for segments to run during Public Radio East’s “Morning Edition,” focused on his book about the state’s politics from 1940 to present.
“The Making of a Southern Democracy: North Carolina Politics from Kerr Scott to Pat McCrory,” which outlines state political activities from 1940 to the present, was highlighted in articles that appeared in the News and Observer article, the Charlotte Observer and the Durham Herald Sun. Read the N&O article here. Read a second N&O article here. Read the Durham Herald Sun article here.
Eamon was a guest on WPTF in Raleigh, Jan. 6, on the Tom Kearney Show. He will appear on Charlotte’s NPR station WFAE on Jan. 17.
Eamon will be at the Quail Ridge Bookstore in Raleigh Jan. 16 for the official kickoff and book-signing, and at Park Road Books in Charlotte on Jan. 18.
