Zionism and the Left
September 19, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Social and cultural theorist Susie Linfield will be in conversation with political theorist Michael Walzer, discussing Linfield’s new book, The Lions’ Den: Zionism and the Left from Hannah Arendt to Noam Chomsky. Lion’s Den traces the roots of leftist Israel hatred through critical studies of eight influential leftist intellectuals, including Hannah Arendt, Isaac Deutscher, Maxime Rodinson, and Noam Chomsky.
We are so delighted to welcome these two scholars to CBE. Michael Walzer is professor emeritus at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton University and is the author of Exodus and Revolution, among other important works. He is also co-editor of Dissent Magazine and is recognized as one of the world’s foremost political thinkers.
