Vanessa M Gezari - The Tender Soldier: A True Story of War and Sacrifice ♦

Aug 15 2013 7:00 pm
Aug 15 2013 8:00 pm

The military’s Human Terrain System operates on the premise that soldiers need to understand the enemy and its culture. This experiment in social science is brutally difficult to implement in Afghanistan, as Gezari documents in her history of the program, profiles of its advocates, and her account of a deadly 2008 incident in a market.

Beer and wine will be available.
