About the Program
A book launch event for Verso Books' "Counterblasts" series. The first three books in the series are polemical takes on influential liberal writers Thomas Friedman, France's Bernard-Henri Levy (BHL), and Canada's Michael Ignatieff. Joining the discussion are the co-authors of "The Imposter: BHL in Wonderland" and the author of "Michael Ignatieff: The Lesser Evil?" This event was part of Left Forum, held at Pace University in New York City.
