The End of Europe


April 4, 2017 , 5:00 - 8:00 PM

A conversation with Anne Applebaum and James Kirchick about Kirchick's new book "The End of Europe: Dictators, Demagogues and the Coming Dark Age" (Yale University Press, 2017).

Once the world’s bastion of liberal, democratic values, Europe is now having to confront demons it thought it had laid to rest. The old pathologies of anti-Semitism, populist nationalism, and territorial aggression are threatening to tear the European postwar consensus apart. With ongoing discussions on America’s role as traditional upholder of the liberal world order and guarantor of the continent’s security, Europe may be facing greater responsibility in dealing with these unprecedented challenges.

Join journalist James Kirchick, author of acclaimed new book, The End of Europe: Dictators, Demagogues and the Coming Dark Age, in conversation with Pulitzer-prize winning Washington Post columnist and author (Gulag: A History, Iron Curtain) Anne Applebaum, for a riveting discussion on the challenges Europe is facing — and why Americans should care.
