Anti-War: WWI, and Now: KPFK Wed 6/1

The anti-war movement in WWI in Britain took a heroic stand against senseless slaughter: ADAM HOCHSCHILD tells that story in his magnificent new book To End All Wars — it was featured on page 1 of the New York Times Book Review. I’ll be in conversation with Adam at the downtown LA public library ALOUD series on Thurs June 2 at 7pm – free but reservations suggested, HERE.

Plus: The Korean WarBRUCE CUMINGS reveals the historical background that explains why it happened, and the extraordinarily vicious methods by which the U.S. fought it.  His new book is The Korean War: A History.

Also: Nixon and Watergate, then and now: historian STANLEY KUTLER sued the feds to force the release of the Nixon White House tapes — and won.  (He also writes for the Huffington Post.)  Now the full story is told for the first time at the Nixon Library in their new Watergate exhibit.  Stan will be speaking at the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda Wed. 6/1 at 7pm on “Liberating the Watergate Tapes.”  Reservations recommended: Email or call 714-983-9120.
