The McConnell Connection


Join us for an evening with George H. Nash, PhD,
a renowned Herbert Hoover biographer.

Nash is the editor of Hoover’s Freedom Betrayed: Herbert Hoover's Secret History of the Second World War and Its Aftermath,
a volume considered part memoir, part diplomatic history, that raises questions still of importance in the post-Cold War world.

Free copies of Nash's 'Books and the Founding Fathers'

Copies of Nash's book–which examines how books, libraries and a classical education molded the minds of America's founding fathers–will be distributed free of charge to the audience Nov. 27.

 Other Books by Nash 

Tuesday, Nov. 27, 6 p.m.

According to George Nash, the book started as Hoover's memoir but evolved into a comprehensive critique of US foreign policy during WWII and its Cold War aftermath. To Hoover, FDR's prewar and wartime diplomacy made the world safe for Stalinist Russia, triggering a dangerous third world war–the Cold War–against a "Communist giant which our own leaders helped build."

During his McConnell Center lecture, Nash will tell the story and assess the significance of Hoover's book–a volume recently deemed a "must-read for anyone interested in the most consequential upheaval of the twentieth century."

Free and open to the public. (Directions)
