In this Bradley Lecture, Leon Aron, author of "Roads to the Temple: Truth, Memory, Ideas, and Ideals in the Making of the Russian Revolution, 1987--1991," will explain the collapse of the Soviet Union as a moral revolution prompted by Russian citizens' quest for dignity in truth, democratic citizenship and political and economic liberty. Aron will discuss how these moral underpinnings can be found in contemporary anti-authoritarian movements as well, including in the Arab Spring and in current movements in Russia, China and Iran.

This is a public event held at the American Enterprise Institute on September 17, 2012.
