Although it is nearly 20 years old, Virginia Postrel‘s The Future and Its Enemies: The Growing Conflict Over Creativity, Enterprise, and Progress reads as though it was written for today’s climate of political turmoil. If you’re interested in the political forces that support a dynamic, changing world and how they oppose those that see the world as increasingly dangerous, out of control, and in need of stricter regulation, this book shouldn’t be missed.

Apply to explore this important and engaging book through our online book club. The ILS will send you a copy of the book and together we’ll explore a chapter a week over eight weeks in July and August 2017. Discussion will be led by ILS Program Coodinator Janet Bufton.

Meetings will be weekly, dates and time will be determined by participant availability.
