This is a rebroadcast of some of our favorite conversation from the past few months.
John Nagl discusses his memoir of modern war, having served in the first Gulf War of ’91, and then again post 9/11. Bryan Stevenson, founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, on his work about the poor and wrongly condemned. Robert Howse on why he calls the hawkish Leo Strauss a man of peace. Philippe de Montebello, the longest-serving director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, talks about on how, and why we look at art.
