A nation must think before it acts.
January 18, 2022 | 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm | Center for the Study of America and the West
In this month's People, Politics, and Prose, Ronald J. Granieri will be joined by Elizabeth D. Samet to discuss her new book, Looking for the Good War: American Amnesia and the Violent Pursuit of Happiness. Granieri and Samet will consider postwar attitudes toward violence, liberty, and nation―attitudes that have shaped domestic and foreign policy and that respond in various ways to various assumptions about national identity and purpose established or affirmed by World War II.
People, Politics, and Prose with Ron Granieri features in-depth conversations with authors of recent books on international affairs and national security. Moderated by FPRI’s Ronald J. Granieri, each session will build on the book’s contents to discuss the author’s influences and motivations, relating everything to current events to elicit a broader understanding of the geographical, political, and historical context of our contemporary world.
The views Elizabeth Samet and Ronald Granieri express here do not reflect the official policy or position of the Department of the Army, the Department of Defense, or the U.S. Government.
