Cockefair Lecture: The Last Best Hope for Our Democracy

America in 2020 was, undoubtedly, a nation divided. And though we should be collectively celebrating the beginning of the end of the pandemic, many citizens remain disheartened by the inept response by our government and politicians; the weakened power of our public institutions; and the rising inequality that has become impossible to ignore.
In Last Best Hope, National Business Book Award-winning author George Packer returns with a sharp, clear-eyed analysis of our current moment. Breaking down the dominant ideologies that now define America, Packer offers fresh insights into how Americans of all backgrounds define freedom, and how we can use the underlying passion for equality to lead us toward a more unified, progressive nation.
Lucid and optimistic, this book and its accompanying talk, reveals a hopeful path towards overcoming our divides.
