DECEMBER 1ST: WALTER MCDOUGALL ON THE TRAGEDY OF U.S. FOREIGN POLICY

"The Tragedy of U.S. Foreign Policy is utterly original, brutally honest, and vividly written. Here is a rare example of an American patriot and master historian willing to speak hard truths about his country."
                                           Andrew Bacevich
 
Join us for the launch of Walter McDougall's The Tragedy of U.S. Foreign Policy, a fierce critique of civil religion as the basis of America's bid for global hegemony. 
 
In The Tragedy of U.S. Foreign Policy, Pulitzer winner McDougall explores the religious rhetoric that has driven an otherwise secular republic through peace, war, and global interventions for more than two hundred years.
