From the state’s geography and demographics to its reliance on the oil and gas industry, Alaska is a unique state with many political contradictions. State politics have changed dramatically over the past few decades, and Clive Thomas has spent decades studying that arc. Thomas was a long-time political science faculty member at the University of Alaska Southeast, and recently completed editing a 1,200-page tome on Alaska politics. Thomas will discuss the long view of Alaska’s politics with KTOO & APRN statehouse reporter Andrew Kitchenman.
