Larry Jacobs to give Penn State Democracy Institute's inaugural lecture.
His research examines political representation - the nature and formation of public opinion, whether and how government responds to the public's policy preferences and other evaluations, and the adaptation of government policy to the changing conditions and circumstances facing Americans. Jacobs has co-written 12 books including a comprehensive review of the Obama administration's policy record, "Reaching for the New Deal: President Obama's Agenda and the Dynamics of U.S. Politics." Another book is "Class War? What Americans Really Think about Economic Inequality."
