In the aftermath of the 2016 election, many think we are suffering a crisis regarding our ability to converse publicly and remain civil, from the airwaves to the dinner table. This week on the Campbell Conversations host Grant Reeher talks with Syracuse University law and political science professor Keith Bybee, about his new book on public civility, titled How Civility Works. Bybee sets forward an argument about civility, that its weaknesses are also its strengths, and that our sense of a collapse in civility is not something new in American public life.
