Event description

Description

Book panel discussion with Isser Woloch, Victoria de Grazia, Ira Katznelson, and Adam Tooze

After the end of World War II, Britain, France, and the U.S. were faced with two very different choices: return to the civic order of pre-war normalcy or embark instead on a path of progressive transformation. In this ambitious and original new book, Isser Woloch assesses the progressive agendas that crystalized in each of the three allied democracies, tracing their roots in the interwar decades, their development during wartime, the struggles to establish them after the war’s end, and the mixed outcome in each country.

Isser Woloch is the Moore Collegiate Professor Emeritus of History at Columbia University. His books include Napoleon and His Collaborators: The Making of a Dictatorship and The New Regime: Transformations of the French Civic Order, 1789–1820s.

Event co-sponsored by the Columbia Maison Française, European Institute, and Department of History.

Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please arrive ahead of time to secure a spot.
