Dr. Brian Anderson, Senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and editor of City Journal, will speak on Bertrand de Jouvenel’s political thought  on 18 October at 5 pm in the Banquet Room of the Alexander Hamilton Institute.  He will speak at a catered dinner to a select group of Hamilton College undergraduates, who are participating in a group independent study that requires a cover-to-cover reading of Jouvenel’s great trilogy: On Power (1945), Sovereignty (1957), and the Pure Theory of Politics (1963).

Dr. Anderson has co-authored A Manifesto for Media Freedom (2008) and is the author of Democratic Capitalism and Its Discontents (2007), South Park Conservatives (2005), and Raymond Aron: the Recovery of the Political (2005).
