In his 40-year journalism career, Abe Zaidan has profiled some of Ohio's political giants - everyone form Governors James Rhodes, and George Voinovich, to Mayors Carl Stokes and Dennis Kucinich. Zaidan has teamed up with Akron-based political scientist John Green to tell the history of a tumultuous era in Ohio politics in a new book titled "Portraits of Power." We'll spend the hour with Zaidan and Green talking about the historical events and larger-than-life personalities that shaped the political climate in the Swing State. Monday at 9, on the Sound of Ideas.


Abe Zaidan has been a professional journalist and freelance writer for more than forty years. He was the Ohio correspondent for the Washington Post, as well as a political columnist at the Akron Beacon Journal. Zaidan was part of the Akron Beacon Journal's team that covered the May 4 shootings at Kent State University in 1970, and his articles helped the newspaper earn a Pulitzer Prize.
John C. Green is the director of the Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics at the University of Akron, as well as a distinguished professor of political science. He is a well-known analyst of national and Ohio politics.
