Book Discussion: Legacies from the Six-Day War with Lila Shapero

March 10, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Book Discussion: Legacies from the Six-Day War with Lila Shapero

Sunday, Mar. 10, 3:00-5:00 p.m.

We will base our discussion on Catch 67: The Left, the Right and the Legacy of the Six-Day War by Micah Goodman, and Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor by Yossi Klein Halevi. Choices made over the past 50 years lead to what appears to be mutually exclusive views and narratives leading to lack of dialogue. Goodman looks at the views of Israeli Jews and the paradox that their differing views each have validity. Klein Halevi addresses his Palestinian neighbors to bridge a gap he believes is caused by their not understanding who we are and why we are in Israel. Access the books on your own.

Once the dominant framework for global politics, the Cold War today is largely a fading memory for most Americans. Yet that half-century of quasi-conflict still reverberates through American policy, consciousness, and assumptions. This course looks at the legacies of the Cold War as they affect us some thirty years after the fall of the Berlin wall.
