Nationalism in the Modern Era

(Members $24)


What safeguards exist to protect liberty in our rapidly changing world? Reflecting on historic nationalist movements—from 16th-century Europe and America to the more recent “Brexit”—author Yoram Hazony discusses the role nationalistic ideals have played in bringing independence to people throughout history and how love of country can promote the virtues of personal and collective freedom.

Yoram Hazony is president of the Herzl Institute in Jerusalem and the author of The Virtue of Nationalism, which was recognized by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute as the 2019 Conservative Book of the Year.

Program update: This program will now be presented as a lecture with Dr. Hazony.


The Robert H. Smith Auditorium at the New-York Historical Society, 170 Central Park West, New York, NY 10024
