Not since the early 20th century has liberalism, and liberals been under such relentless attack, from both right and left. American author Adam Gopnik’s A Thousand Small Sanities: The Moral Adventure of Liberalism argues that this crisis of democracy in our era has produced a crisis of faith in liberal institutions and even in liberal thought. His new book is a manifesto rooted in the lives of those who invented and extended the liberal tradition. Hear from the New York Times bestselling author on why he believes liberalism to be one of the great moral adventures in human history, and why our lives may depend on its continuation. Gopnik will be interviewed by Elamin Abdelmahmoud. Hosted by Andrew Westoll.
