Rampage Nation Author Takes Aim at Mass Shootings
Why do mass shootings occur ever-more frequently in America and elsewhere, and what can be done to prevent them? In his book, Rampage Nation: Securing America from Mass Shootings, Dr. Louis Klarevas examines these pressing questions through careful research, and proposes immediate and long-term approaches to tackling this crisis.
On Thursday, October 24, beginning at 1 p.m., Dr. Klarevas leads a thoughtful discussion of his insightful and timely work. The talk, co-sponsored by the Swarthmore Campus & Community Store, the Rotary Club of Swarthmore, and the Peace and Conflict Studies department of Swarthmore College, will take place in Gathering Room A of the Inn at Swarthmore. A book signing at the adjacent Campus & Community Store will immediately follow the talk; copies of Rampage Nation will be available for purchase.
Dr. Klarevas, an Associate Lecturer in the Department of Global Affairs at UMass Boston, has taught courses at several other universities, served as the Defense Analysis Research Fellow at the London School of Economics, and was a Senior Fulbright Scholar in Security Studies. Dr. Klarevas has been a consultant on national security to the federal government, and is a frequent commentator on homeland security and foreign policy on CNN, ABC, NPR, and the BBC.
Admission to this important event is free and open to all. The Inn at Swarthmore is at 10 S. Chester Road.
