“We know that disagreement over the causes of World War I profoundly shaped the subsequent course of European and world history,” notes Dr. Scott. “Our latest program will explore the role played both by the U.S. and the British in what was then called the Great War, the intended and unintended consequences of this war and what lessons are relevant to society today. I look forward to sharing this exchange with our viewers.”
Joining Dr. Scott to examine how World War I shaped the course of history are guests: Dr. Michael Christofferson, Associate Professor, Adelphi University; Dr. Jennifer Fleischner, Professor, Adelphi University; Dr. Katie Laatikainen, Associate Professor, Adelphi University; and Dr. Hugh Wilson, Professor Emeritus, Adelphi University.
