Arthur Herman - 1917: Lenin, Wilson, and the Birth of the New World Disorder

Upcoming Event
Saturday, January 13, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

In his detailed profile of the year 1917, Herman focuses on the Russian Revolution and America’s entry into World War I, two events that unfolded simultaneously and had lasting, global reverberations. As he did in Gandhi and Churchill, Herman, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, channels the history of this turbulent year through a dual biography, showing how Vladimir Lenin and Woodrow Wilson imprinted their time and influenced each other, although they never met. On the surface, these two leaders were sharply distinct in temperament, experience, and ideology. As Herman shows, however, both rose to unprecedented power, both transformed their countries, and both were beloved as well as reviled for their actions.
