On Tuesday, October 3 at 7:30pm, the Whallonsburg Grange Hall will present “Why World War Two Still Matters,” with Andy Buchanan. This is the second lecture in the fall Lyceum series entitled “What’s the Big Idea?” featuring six fascinating lectures from authors, educators, journalists, and scientists.
Looking at the world today, it’s easy to see the unraveling of the many decades of the American-dominated post-war order. The redivision of the world that emerged from the ashes of World War II, new “spheres of influence” reverberate in the present. How US domination was assembled, deliberately and consciously, during this period and its consequences is the subject of tonight’s lecture. Andy Buchanan is a lecturer in History at the University of Vermont and author of American Grand Strategy in the Mediterranean During World War II.
Admission is $5.00, students are free. For more information, visit www.thegrangehall.info.
