Evan Thomas: America, War and Empire

Editor, Newsweek; Author, The War Lovers

Thomas’s work in journalism has won him praise from all quarters. He explores our nation’s idiosyncratic urge to invade via the context of the Spanish-American War. He will present his take on America’s mindset for war, drawing links between the likes of hawkish Teddy Roosevelt and William Randolph Hearst and our current leaders.
