How do we understand war? In this month's People, Politics, and Prose, Beatrice Heuser joins Ronald J. Granieri to discuss her new book, War: A Genealogy of Western Ideas and Practices. Heuser and Granieri will discuss how Western civilizations have conceptualized war in binary ways, and how to understand war, we must shed some of these binaries.
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.
