To mark the seventy-fifth anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the fiftieth anniversary of the first Earth Day, renowned psychiatrist and author Robert Jay Lifton and Katrina vanden Heuvel, publisher of The Nation, discuss the writer and friend who puts his remarkable literary gifts in the service of disarmament, nonviolence, international cooperation, and the irresistible power of democracy.

Moderated by Martin J. Sherwin, editor of the new LOA collection Jonathan Schell: The Fate of the Earth, The Abolition, The Unconquerable World.

 

"Violence is the method by which the ruthless few can subdue the passive many. Nonviolence is the method by which the active many can overcome the ruthless few" - Jonathan Schell, from The Unconquerable World
