The United States of Fear
Tom Engelhardt in Conversation with Jeremy Scahill

Please join author and editor Tom Engelhardt and journalist Jeremy Scahill for a reading and conversation on the occasion of the launch of Engelhardt's new book The United States of Fear, the startling tale of how fear was profitably shot into the national bloodstream, how the country was locked down, and how a brain-dead Washington elite fiddled (and profited) while America quietly burned. Free and open to the public. Co-sponsored by The Nation Institute and Haymarket Books.
