Zócalo Lecture: What is the West's Problem with Islam?

Thursday Nov 20, 2008 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM This is a past program

Is Islamic belief and culture incompatible with Western institutions? Or is there such a thing as “Islamophobia,” poisoning immigrants’ efforts to integrate on European terms? Christopher Caldwell writes for the Financial Times, The New York Times Magazine, and The Weekly Standard, and talks about themes from his upcoming book, Reflections on the Revolution in Europe: Immigration, Islam and the West.

Public programs are made possible by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss. 

Additional support is provided by Laura Donnelley, Bronya and Andrew Galef, and the Hammer Programs Committee.
