Join us for a conversation with historians Tara Zahra and Kevin Boyle about Dr. Zahra’s new book, Against the World: Anti-Globalism and Mass Politics Between the World Wars. They will discuss how nationalism, rather than internationalism, came to ensnare world politics in the early twentieth century.
Before World War I, enthusiasm for a borderless world seemed to be gaining traction. And yet a backlash against globalization was growing. As the war progressed, air escaped from the globalist balloon in the United States and across Europe, where war and disease led to mass societal upheaval.
Against the World will be available for purchase in the Newberry Bookshop, as will Dr. Boyle’s recent book, The Shattering: America in the 1960s. Both authors will sign books after the program.
