GREAT DECISIONS

Media and Foreign Policy
By Susan Moeller


State and non-state actors today must maneuver a complex and rapidly evolving media landscape. Conventional journalism now competes with user-generated content. Official channels of communication can be circumvented through social media. Foreign policy is tweeted from the White House and “fake news” has entered the zeitgeist. Cyberwarfare, hacking and misinformation pose complex security threats. How are actors using media to pursue and defend their interests in the international arena? What are the implications for U.S. policy?

THE MARCH by E.L. Doctorow (2006, 363 pp.) Led by Stephanie Spinner.

In 1864, Union general William Tecumseh Sherman marched his sixty thousand troops through Georgia to the sea, and then up into the Carolinas, effectively ending the Civil War. The army fought off Confederate forces, demolished cities, and swept up in its wake both white refugees and thousands of freed slaves. With terse episodes and multiple narratives, Doctorow paints an unforgettable picture of this floating world, and the historic upheaval around it. “An Iliad-like portrait of war as a primeval human affliction . . . [welds] the personal and the mythic into a thrilling and poignant story.”—New York Times.

Everyone is welcomed to enjoy a lively discussion and refreshments! Copies of the books are available at the library.

GREAT DECISIONS

Turkey: A Partner In Crisis
By Ömer Taspinar


Of all NATO allies, Turkey represents the most daunting challenge for the Trump administration. In the wake of a failed military coup in July 2016, the autocratic trend in Ankara took a turn for the worse. One year on, an overwhelming majority of the population considers the United States to be their country’s greatest security threat. In this age of a worsening “clash of civilizations” between Islam and the West, even more important than its place on the map is what Turkey symbolically represents as the most institutionally Westernized Muslim country in the world.

Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd travels from town to town, reading newspapers and bringing the news of the world to settlements on the Texas frontier.

Ten-year-old Johanna, who now considers herself a Kiowa, has absolutely no desire to return.

U.S. Global Engagement and the Military
By Gordon Adams

The global power balance is rapidly evolving, leaving the United States at a turning point with respect to its level of engagement and the role of its military. Some argue for an “America First” paradigm, with a large military to ensure security, while others call for a more assertive posture overseas. Some advocate for a restoration of American multilateral leadership and a strengthened role for diplomacy. Still others envision a restrained U.S. role, involving a more limited military. How does the military function in today’s international order, and how might it be balanced with diplomatic and foreign assistance capabilities?

GREAT DECISIONS

South Africa’s Fragile Democracy
By Sean Jacobs


The African National Congress (ANC) party has governed South Africa since the end of apartheid in 1994. But the party today suffers from popular frustration over official corruption and economic stagnation. It faces growing threats from both left and right opposition parties, even as intraparty divisions surface. Given America’s history of opportunistic engagement with Africa, there are few prospects for a closer relationship between the two countries. Meanwhile, a weaker ANC could lead to political fragmentation in this relatively new democracy.

Global health: Progress and Challenges
By Joshua Michaud

The collective action of countries, communities and organizations over the last 30 years has literally saved millions of lives around the world. Yet terrible inequalities in health and wellbeing persist. The world now faces a mix of old and new health challenges, including the preventable deaths of mothers and children, continuing epidemics of infectious diseases, and rising rates of chronic disease. We also remain vulnerable to the emergence of new and deadly pandemics. For these reasons, the next several decades will be just as important—if not more so—than the last in determining wellbeing across nations.Type your paragraph here.

THE LITTLE RED CHAIRS by Edna O’Brien (2016, 320 pp.) Led by Diana Bristol.

O’Brien’s 17th novel begins with a Balkan war criminal masquerading as a holistic healer in a small Irish village. Fidelma, one of the village women, falls passionately in love with him, and is forced to flee to London when he is exposed. There, entering the world of immigrants, exiles and indentured visitors, she tries to reclaim her life. The novel’s title refers to the 20year commemoration of the Serbian siege, when thousands of little red chairs, representing the dead, filled Sarajevo’s square. Written when she was 85, and called “O’Brien’s masterpiece” by Philip Roth, this is a harrowing, funny, timely novel.

THE TORTILLA CURTAIN by T.C. Boyle (1995, 355 pp.) Led by Cindy Whitman.

Two Los Angeles couples—white liberal Haves in a gated community, and Mexican immigrant HaveNots, living in a makeshift camp--are brought together by a freak accident, sparking a tragicomedy of error and misunderstanding. Boyle’s novel, a meditation on the dispossessed and the American dream, California style, was written more than twenty years ago. It is painfully relevant today. "Succeeds in stealing the front page news and bringing it home. . . A book to appreciate as we peer at the faces of strangers outside our windows, and wall ourselves in." --The Boston Globe.

“Come with a song you know and leave with one you don’t.” That’s the motto of co-hosts Al Burgasser and Nancy Walsh.

Unplugged jamming for people who enjoy playing and listening to acoustic music. Grab your instrument and voice and join friends for folksongs, bluegrass, blues, swing and all acoustic styles.

All levels of performers are welcomed from beginner to professional. Or just stop by to relax and enjoy musical talent that thrives in our community.
