SPEAKER: ERIC ALTERMAN
A veteran columnist for The Nation, The American Prospect and The Forward, among others, Alterman will discuss his latest book, We Are Not One, about the long-running debate over Israel, its policies and politics, among Americans — often most angrily among American Jews, and increasing now with escalating Palestinian attacks and larger Israeli counterstrikes under the restored leadership of Benjamin Netanyahu, along with controversial changes to that nation's judiciary and expansion of "settler" sites in Arab territory.
A professor of English and journalism at Brooklyn College, Alterman’s dozen books include Who Speaks for America? Why Democracy Matters in Foreign Policy and When Presidents Lie: A History of Official Deception and its Consequences.
