Book Club with the Author: The Last Brahmin
June 23, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join author Luke Nichter to discuss The Last Brahmin: Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. and the Making of the Cold War.
In this book, historian Nichter gives us a compelling narrative of Lodge’s extraordinary and consequential life. Lodge was among the last of the well‑heeled Eastern Establishment Republicans who put duty over partisanship and saw themselves as the hereditary captains of the American state. Unlike many who reach his position, Lodge took his secrets to the grave—including some that, revealed here for the first time, will force historians to rethink their understanding of America’s involvement in the Vietnam War.
Books for this session are available through our online shop here or at the Cabot House, 117 Cabot Street, for $37.50 (Members receive 20% off!)
This is a reschedule of our January date and author, Luke Nichter, will be joining us for the discussion on his new book, so come prepared with great questions! Luke A. Nichter is professor of history at Texas A&M University–Central Texas. He coedited (with Douglas Brinkley) the New York Times bestselling book The Nixon Tapes: 1971–1972.
