Historian Douglas Brinkley, the Katherine Tsanoff Brown Chair in Humanities and professor of history at Rice University, discusses the lifetime of research and scholarship that has led to his most recent book, Silent Spring Revolution: John F. Kennedy, Rachel Carson, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, and the Great Environmental Awakening. Brinkley’s book continues his exploration of the legacies of Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt,  Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon. It is a stirring portrait of the Long Sixties (1960-1973) and the writers such as Rachel Carson and activists who opened doors of environmental awareness, and how their work informs and illuminates the great climate change questions of our time. Veteran journalist Errol Laborde conducts the interview.
