Terrorism and the United States: An Ironic Perspective
From Jeff Layne
Philosophy Professor Emeritus, CSU, Chico
Professor Emeritus Ron Hirschbein is one of the co-founders of the CSU, Chico Peace Institute. In this presentation, he returns to Chico to talk about his book, “The United States and Terrorism: An Ironic Perspective” (Roman & Littlefield Publishers, 2015). Dr. Hirschbein asserts, “Terrorism hasn’t always gotten bad press.” Hirschbein explains the main story he tells in his book is how terrorism went from consideration of as “a wondrous strategy for winning wars and keeping the peace” to “the most loathsome of human behaviors.” The focus is on World War II to the present.
