"Perspectives on a Post-9/11 World" brings together a diverse group of distinguished historians, political scientists, artists, musicians, and writers to reflect on questions surrounding who we have become as a nation and as a people in an age of global terrorism, liberation movements, technological upheavals, economic insecurity, and fractious politics.

Hall, UW-Madison Ambrose-Hesseltine Professor in U.S. Military History and UW-Madison professor of political science Jon Pevehouse discussing the American military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and beyond since 9/11.
