On June 10, Sean P. Cunningham will present "Man of the West: Goldwater’s Reflection in the Oasis of Frontier Conservatism" from the Spring 2020 Barry Goldwater and the Election of 1964 Issue.

As Cunningham shares, "Barry Goldwater was one of the most polarizing figures in the history of twentieth-century American politics. He was also one of the most significant. An icon of modern conservatism, a fierce champion of libertarianism, an uncompromisingly blunt communicator, and a martyr to those on the political Right, Goldwater—more than two decades after his death—still inspires a very specific (and highly effective) brand of politician. For better or worse, that brand is largely synonymous with the stereotypes, myths, and romanticized tropes of the geographic region from which Goldwater emerged into national prominence."
