Book Club – Special Event – Bernard-Henri Levy present his new book “The empire and the five Kings”
February 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Bernard-Henri Levy present his new book “The empire and the five Kings” at sixth and I synagogue.
Description: In his book Lévy—one of the West’s leading intellectuals—asserts that America is retreating from its traditional leadership role as Russia, China, Turkey, Iran, and Sunni radical Islamism are taking steps to assert power and influence and undermine the liberal values that have been a hallmark of Western civilization. The book draws upon lessons from history and human culture to reveal the stakes facing the West as America steps back from its leadership role, a process that Lévy asserts did not begin with Donald Trump’s presidency and is not likely to end with him. The crisis is one whose roots can be found as far back as antiquity and whose resolution will require the West to find a new way forward if its principles and values are to survive. Lévy is a philosopher, activist, filmmaker and author of over thirty books. Levy will be in conversation with Robert Kagan, a senior fellow with the Foreign Policy program at Brookings. He served in the State Department from 1984 – 1988 as a member of the policy planning staff, as principal speechwriter for Secretary of State George P. Shultz, and as deputy for policy in the Bureau of Inter-American Affairs.
