Mass Humanities and Harvard Book Store welcome award-winning journalist and academic DUNCAN WHITE--Assistant Director of Studies in History & Literature at Harvard University--for a discussion of his latest book. In "Cold Warriors," Harvard University's Duncan White vividly chronicles how this ferocious intellectual struggle was waged on both sides of the Iron Curtain. Spanning decades and continents and spectacularly meshing gripping narrative with perceptive literary detective work, "Cold Warriors" is a welcome reminder that, at a moment when ignorance is celebrated and reading seen as increasingly irrelevant, writers and books can change the world.
