Kevin McNamara: Dreams of a Great Small Nation

author's talk 24 October, 2018 - 7:00 PM

[BBLA at Bohemian National Hall]

 

Kevin McNamara, author of the book "Dreams of a Great Small Nation," will introduce his comprehensive account of the highly dramatic events that led to the founding of Czechoslovakia in 1918. The story involves an ad hoc army of ex-POWs that inadvertently seized all of Siberia, global espionage, high-stakes diplomacy and America’s own Czechs and Slovaks who raised funds and pressured President Woodrow Wilson to grant their peoples independence. 

 

Kevin J. McNamara, a former journalist, bureau chief, and U.S. congressional aide, is an associate scholar of the Foreign Policy Research Institute, Philadelphia, PA, and a former contributing editor of Orbis, its quarterly journal of world affairs.
