  5. Unfreedom with Lorin Maloney

    April 24, 2019, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM @ The Jenks Center

    From the end of the Second World War through the beginning of the 21st Century, the United States has supported a Western World Order underpinned by robust democratic capitalism: free trade, citizens involved government, human rights. Since the beginning of the 21st Century (some historians would argue earlier), illiberal governments have emerged, influenced by a backward-looking Russia. Many now pose a serious challenge to the Western political paradigm. How will America respond to this foreign and domestic challenge? The text for the class will be The Road to Unfreedom: Russia, Europe, America by Timothy Snyder.
