Walter McDougall to Speak at Penn Book Center

Thursday, December 1, 2016 - 6:00pm

Penn Book Center, 130 South 34th Street Philadelphia, PA 19104

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.
