Alan Wolfe faces his critics

The new book Political Evil: What It Is and How to Combat It by acclaimed Boston College political scientist Alan Wolfe is a provocative challenge to widely held beliefs about genocide, intervention and the use of force to combat evil in the world. Wolfe argues that in an age of partisan blame-assigning, therapeutic excuse-making, and theological question-dodging, we need to get serious about the problem of evil once again. He will face critic response from Martha Minow, dean of Harvard Law School and author of two important books on justice, genocide and international justice, and James Traub of New York Times in a panel discussion on Sept. 21 at 6 p.m. in Higgins Hall, room 300.
