This week was a very busy one for news. Trump gave his State of the Union speech followed the next day by his acquittal in the impeachment trial and the Democrats made a mess of the Iowa Caucuses. To help us get perspective on these events, I’m joined by historian Jeremy Kuzmarov.
Jeremy is the author of 4 books on US foreign policy:
- Obama’s Unending Wars: Fronting the Foreign Policy of the Permanent Warfare State
- Modernizing Repression: Police Training and Nation-Building in the American Century (Culture, Politics, and the Cold War)
- The Myth of the Addicted Army: Vietnam and the Modern War on Drugs (Culture, Politics, and the Cold War)
- The Russians Are Coming, Again: The First Cold War as Tragedy, the Second as Farce (with John Marciano)
He has taught at numerous universities in the field of US history and foreign relations and contributes to a number of progressive publications. He is also a board member of the Tulsa Peace Fellowship and on the Steering Committee for Historians for Peace and Democracy.
