Posted Monday, December 17, 2007

Share on Facebook Share

In his 40-year journalism career, Abe Zaidan has profiled some of Ohio's political giants - everyone form Governors James Rhodes, and George Voinovich, to Mayors Carl Stokes and Dennis Kucinich. Zaidan has teamed up with Akron-based political scientist John Green to tell the history of a tumultuous era in Ohio politics in a new book titled "Portraits of Power." We'll spend the hour with Zaidan and Green talking about the historical events and larger-than-life personalities that shaped the political climate in the Swing State. Monday at 9, on the Sound of Ideas.
