Adam Drinkwater

Adam sits down with Dr. Luke Ritter to discuss his forthcoming book “The Origins of Nativism in the Antebellum West”.  Dr. Ritter completed his Ph.D. in American History at Saint Louis University, and currently teaches at Troy University. 

We spend a few minutes talking about his personal journey that lead to his interest in human behavior and American History. And, since I’ve never written a book, we talk about that process a little before we get into the concept of Nativism. I think this interview really challenged my thoughts on immigration. The conclusion applies some of those lessons to our current immigration situation. I hope you’ll listen, and learn something new like I have.
