Freedman (Redefining Rape: Sexual Violence in the Era of Suffrage and Segregation), Gerhard Casper (The Winds of Freedom: Addressing Challenges to the University), Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht (After 1945: Latency as Origin of the Present), Mark Jarrett (The Congress of Vienna and Its Legacy: War and Great Power Diplomacy after Napoleon), Herbert Lindenberger (One Family’s Shoah: Victimization, Resistance, Survival in Nazi Europe), Tung-Hui Hu (Greenhouses, Lighthouses), Patricia Klaus and Shirley Streshinsky (An Atomic Love Story: The Extraordinary Women in Robert Oppenheimer’s Life), Bruce J. Schulman, ed. (Making the American Century), Rodney Koeneke (Etruria), Yumi Moon (Populist Collaborators), David M. Kennedy, ed. (The Modern American Military), Ian Morris (War! What Is It Good For?), and Sarah S. Lochlann Jain (Malignant: How Cancer Becomes Us).

This program is hosted by Peter Stansky, Field Professor of History, Emeritus, Stanford. Drop in, or indulge yourself by spending the entire afternoon in the company of these bright, entertaining, and stimulating writers.
