Wildland: Evan Osnos in Conversation with Gen. (Ret.) David H. Petraeus

Evan Osnos and Gen. (Ret.) David H. Petraeus

Join National Book Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning New Yorker writer Evan Osnos on the troubled state of 21st-century America — and his new book, Wildland: The Making of America’s Fury.

In an incisive account of three places in America that he believes help explain our contemporary political unraveling — Greenwich, CT; Clarksburg, WV; and Chicago — Osnos captures the seismic changes that have occurred in American culture over the course of the last two decades. Hear him and Petraeus discuss what they have both learned about our polarization at home and abroad — the story of how America lost its moral confidence, and how we might get it back.
