The Age of Illusions: How America Squandered Its Cold War Victory

Image result for andrew bacevichWhen the Cold War ended with the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Washington establishment felt it had prevailed in a world-historical struggle. History, having brought the United States to the very summit of power and prestige, had validated American-style liberal democratic capitalism as universally applicable. Join WACA for a conversation with Andrew Bacevich as he explains how, within a quarter of a century, the United States ended up with gaping inequality, permanent war, moral confusion, and an increasingly angry and alienated population, as well, of course, as the strangest president in American history.

Andrew J. Bacevich is the President of the Quincy Institute. More about the speaker...
