Who are we as a nation? And what is it that’s tearing us apart? E. J. Dionne Jr., one of our most respected political commentators, argues that Americans can’t agree on who we are because we can’t agree on who we’ve been. Dionne says the American tradition is to find a balance between our love of individual freedom and our devotion to community. With a deep understanding of our nation’s past, Dionne crafts an incisive analysis of how hyper-individualism is poisoning our current political atmosphere. And as always, events at Park Road Books are free and open to the public.
