Politics: The Starter Kit - How to Succeed in Politics & Government – Episode 07
Author Jim Nowlan discusses his new book "Politics: The Starter Kit - How to Succeed in Politics and Government" and two of his earlier books, “Illinois Politics” and “Fixing Illinois.” His new book is intended for those new to politics and government or who are interested in becoming involved.
Nowlan received his BA, MA, and Ph.D. degrees in political science from the University of Illinois. In addition to a distinguished career in government and politics, Nowlan has taught at the University of Illinois and Knox College. He has also written more than 600 newspaper columns, many about the challenges confronting Illinois. The Illinois Authors series builds on the “Illinois 101” project, in which more than 20 prominent Illinoisans recommended histories, biographies, novels, or essays to provide a nuanced understanding of our state.
