Join this discussion on the historical roots of US involvement in the Middle East and the rise of anti-Western Islamism in the past century.

How the West Stole Democracy from the Arabs: The Syrian Congress of 1920 and the Destruction of its Historic Liberal-Islamic Alliance is the story of a pivotal moment in modern world history, when Arabs established a representative democracy--and how the West crushed it.

Elizabeth F. Thompson is a leading historian of the modern Middle East and Mohamed S. Farsi Chair of Islamic Peace at American University's School of International Service. She is the author of two previous books, Colonial Citizens: Republican Rights, Paternal Privilege and Gender in French Syria and Lebanon, winner of two national book prizes, and Justice Interrupted: The Struggle for Constitutional Government in the Middle East.

Thompson will be joined in conversation with Erez Manela, professor of international history at Harvard University and author of The Wilsonian Moment.
