“After the Apocalypse” with Andrew Bacevich

Program for Sunday, July 25, 2021

The 2020 Apocalypse “exposed weakness and rot in institutions whose integrity Americans had long taken for granted,” historian Andrew Bacevich explains in the introduction to his latest book. Join him for a reflection on recent events and America’s changing role in the world. How do we escape the endless fantasy of American power? After recognizing the hubris and error of American Exceptionalism, how might we act as a nation in a world transformed?
