Recorded at the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe, New Mexico on November 19, 2008.
Jonathan Schell is the author of 13 books, the most recent being The Seventh Decade: The New Shape of the Nuclear Danger. He was a staff writer at The New Yorker magazine from 1967 to 1987 and is now a visiting lecturer at Yale University. Schell’s other books include The Fate of the Earth, which first appeared in three parts in The New Yorker, became a bestseller and was hailed by The New York Times as “an event of profound historical moment,” and The Unconquerable World, which the Times called “the most impressive argument ever made that there exists a viable and desirable alternative to a continued reliance on war.”[audio:http://s3.amazonaws.com/media.lannan.org/podcasts/jonathan-schell-081119.mp3]
