From the Civil War to the New Deal, America has been shaped by political upheavals—and it has emerged from those trials with lasting institutional and cultural changes.

Today, after experiencing years of economic stagnation, a fast-growing welfare state, and a widening partisan gulf, Americans are wondering if the inauguration of President Trump and an insurgent Republican administration marks the beginning of a fundamental political and social realignment.

Will this new governing coalition deliver a clean break with America's longstanding political order? Above all, will it guide the U.S. to renewed prosperity? In an all-star roundtable conversation, F.H. Buckley, William Kristol, Rich Lowry, James Piereson, Peter Thiel, and moderator Roger Kimball will examine the current U.S. political upheaval in its historical context.

F.H. Buckley is a Foundation Professor at George Mason School of Law. He is the author, most recently, of The Way Back: Restoring the Promise of America.

William Kristol is editor-at-large at The Weekly Standard, which he co-founded 21 years ago. Previously, he served in the Reagan and Bush administrations and taught at the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard.

Rich Lowry is editor of National Review. He is also a syndicated columnist, a commentator for Fox News, and author of Lincoln Unbound and Legacy: Paying the Price for the Clinton Years—a New York Times bestseller.

James Piereson is president of the William E. Simon Foundation and a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute. He is the author, most recently, of Shattered Consensus: The Rise and Decline of America's Postwar Political Order.

Peter Thiel, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur and investor, is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Zero to One: Notes on Startups Or How to Build the Future.

Roger Kimball is editor and publisher of The New Criterion and publisher of Encounter Books.
