Town Hall all but sets up ‘shop’ at Pigott Auditorium on the Seattle University campus this week, as Adam Hochschild on the 13th is followed this evening by Francis Fukuyama, presently the Olivier Nomellini Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, and the author of such works as Political Order and Political Decay, The Origins of Political Order, The End of History and the Last Man, Trust, and America at the Crossroads: Democracy, Power, and the Neoconservative Legacy. He is here tonight with his newest book, Identity: The Demand for Dignity and the Politics of Resentment (Farrar, Straus & Giroux).
"The renowned political scientist argues persuasively, and urgently, that a desire for recognition of one's dignity is inherent in every human being—and is necessary for a thriving democracy . . . A cogent analysis of dire threats to democracy." —Kirkus Reviews.
Co-presented with TOWN HALL/INSIDE OUT CIVICS Series. Tickets and more information here.
