Author Event: ‘Stripping Bare the Body: Politics Violence War’
November 6, 2009 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Drawing on accounts of politics, violence, and war from around the world, Stripping Bare the Body is a moral history of American power during the last quarter century. Moving from bloody battlegrounds and dark prison cells to air-conditioned offices, the book recounts how the United States passed from the Cold War’s violent certainties through the ideological confusions of the post-Cold War world into the ongoing fanatical evangelism of the War on Terror and the Iraq War. The grim and compelling narrative tells the tale of the final years of the American century and the wreckage it has left in its wake. Author Mark Danner will lead this discussion.
