Read the event highlights


Bruce Hoffman has spent nearly 40 years studying how terrorism affects government policy and decisionmaking. His latest book, Anonymous Soldiers, draws on newly declassified documents in the U.K., the U.S., and Israel to describe how both Arab and Jewish terrorism between 1917 and 1947 influenced Britain's day-to-day policies and, finally, its decision to surrender the mandate for Palestine to the UN. We hope you will join us for an intimate conversation in our library about why the history of this period remains relevant today.
