College campuses have always been hotbeds of protest, but since the 2016 election, stories of activism gone wild have been particularly prevalent: violent protests, demands for safe spaces, and the silencing of views that activist groups find disagreeable. Who are the leaders behind these protests, and what do they want?

Libertarian journalist Robby Soave seeks to answer these questions in his new book, Panic Attack: Young Radicals in the Age of Trump. Soave profiles young radicals from across the political spectrum to gain insight into this millennial and Generation Z activism.

On Wednesday, September 4, Arizona State University’s School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership, in partnership with the Goldwater Institute, welcomes Soave to ASU’s Tempe campus for a lecture and book signing.

Soave is an associate editor at He enjoys writing about college news, education policy, criminal justice reform and television. He is also a columnist for The Daily Beast and has penned articles for The New York Times, New York Post, CNN, USA Today, U.S. News & World Report, Newsweek, The Orange County Register and The Detroit News. Forbes named him to the 2016 “30 Under 30” list in the category of law and policy.

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey will introduce offer introductory remarks at the event. Copies of Soave’s book will be available for purchase. You can learn more about the event and register to attend here.
