Please join TNS Host Michael Lerner for a conversation with Adam Hochschild about an account of Americans in the Spanish Civil War that has deep resonance with events of our time.
Adam is a renowned journalist and author whose works include King Leopold’s Ghost (1998), To End All Wars: A Story of Loyalty and Rebellion, 1914–1918 (2011), Bury the Chains (2005), The Mirror at Midnight (1990), The Unquiet Ghost (1994), and, most recently Spain in Our Hearts. As a college student, he spent a summer working on an anti-government newspaper in South Africa and subsequently worked briefly as a civil rights worker in Mississippi during 1964. He later was part of the movement against the Vietnam War. He worked as a writer and editor for Ramparts magazine. In the mid-1970s, he was one of the co-founders of Mother Jones. A longtime lecturer at the Graduate School of Journalism at the University of California, Berkeley, Hochschild lives in Berkeley and is married to sociologist Arlie Russell Hochschild.
