The past decade in Ukraine has witnessed a series of social and political upheavals: first, the “Orange Revolution” of 2004-2005; then a decade of hope and disappointment when the gains made after the Orange Revolution were rolled back by a repressive government; then the popular uprising that resulted in the “Revolution of Dignity” and flight of the president in 2013-2014; and finally the protracted threat of Russian intervention, military invasion, and further annexation of territory that faces Ukraine in the summer of 2014.
The lecture will discuss the long social and cultural history of the conflict between Ukraine and Russia; the nature of the Orange Revolution and the Revolution of Dignity; and the possible future outcomes of the current, very tense situation facing Ukraine and the world.

During the sixties, America passed from a culture of work, sacrifice and savings to a culture of consumption, immediate gratification and youthful hedonism. "Do not trust anyone over thirty" and "burn baby burn" were the new watchwords.
Join us as we discuss the events, personalities and conflicts of the Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon years. We will especially examine how all the forces dividing America converged on the 1968 presidential election
and Nixon's promise to "Bring us Together."
Read Joe McGinniss “The Sellingof the President 1968”.
This book wrote the script for modern presidential politicking.
