Public Talk Hosted By Vijay Prashad.
Please join us for the book launch of Noam Chomsky and Vijay Prashad’s The Withdrawal: Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, and the Fragility of U.S. Power. Coinciding with the one-year anniversary of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, leading public intellectual Vijay Prashad discusses the past twenty years of American imperialism, and their horrifying outcomes- disastrous interventions in Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan as well as the engineering of a new security state with unprecedented powers of surveillance and detention.
As the final moments of American power in Afghanistan fade from view, this crucial book argues that we must not take our eyes off the wreckage—and that we need, above all, an unsentimental view of the new world we must build together.
A discussion will be followed by a Q&A and book signing by Vijay Prashad.
