Dr. Charles Murray has his finger on the pulse of American culture. He argues that what divides America is not race or party but economic class and virtue.

Murray will be speaking about his book Coming Apart, what fellow scholar Brad Wilcox called a “sobering portrait of a nation where millions of people are losing touch with the founding virtues that have long lent American lives purpose, direction and happiness.”

Come and hear how American culture has evolved even further in the past decade, and what needs to be done to address our root problems.

Dr. Charles Murray

Charles Murray is the F.A. Hayek Emeritus Chair in Cultural Studies at the American Enterprise Institute. A political scientist, author, and libertarian, he first came to national attention in 1984 with the publication of “Losing Ground,” which has been credited as the intellectual foundation for the Welfare Reform Act of 1996. His 1994 New York Times bestseller “The Bell Curve” (Free Press, 1994), coauthored with the late Richard J. Herrnstein, sparked heated controversy for its analysis of the role of IQ in shaping America’s class structure. Dr. Murray’s other books include “What It Means to Be a Libertarian” (1997), “Human Accomplishment” (2003), “In Our Hands” (2006), “Real Education” (2008), and the New York Times bestseller “Coming Apart” (2012). His most recent book, “By the People: Rebuilding Liberty Without Permission” (Crown Forum, 2015) urges Americans to stem governmental overreach and use America’s unique civil society to put government back in its place.

Dr. Murray has Ph.D. in political science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a B.A. in history from Harvard University.
