Date: Thursday, October 18, 2018

Time: 7:00pm

Dominican University of California invites you to their Institute for Leadership Studies Lecture Series featuring author Michael Beschloss. After ten years in research and wrtiting, Michael Beschloss' Presidents of War is a fresh, magisterial, intimate look at a procession of American leaders as they took the nation into conflict and mobilized their country for victory. It brings us into the room as they make the most difficult decisions that face any President, at times sending hundreds of thousands of American men and women to their deaths. Presidents of War combines the sense of being there with the overarching context of two centuries of American history. This important book shows how far we have traveled from the time of our Founders, who tried to constrain presidential power, to our modern day, when a single leader has the potential to launch nuclear weapons that can destroy much of the human race.

Tickets: $45 (includes book)
