Matthew Kahn ’88 Discusses His Book, Climatopolis
 Matthew Kahn ’88 spoke to the Hamilton community about his latest book, Climatopolis on Sept. 21. His book offers an unusual approach to dealing with climate change: because little is currently being done to stop climate change, the world should switch its focus on adapting to the changes that have already been created and show no sign of slowing down.

Michael Meyer '74 Authors The Year that Changed the World
When he traveled to Berlin in 1987, President Ronald Reagan said famously, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” And while the United States certainly played an important role in the end of the Cold War, there were other (arguably more significant) factors at work. In his book The Year that Changed the World: The Untold Story of the Fall of the Berlin Wall (Simon & Schuster, 9/09), author Michael Meyer ’74 contends that domestic resistance movements and certain key figures within the USSR at the time – in particular Hungarian Prime Minister Miklós Németh – were the true impetuses behind the fall of communism in Eastern Europe. In so doing, Meyer rejects the “common knowledge” interpretation of Cold War history and uncovers hitherto-undervalued people, events, and perspectives. More ...

These questions drive Matthew Kahn's exploration of the relationship between urban growth and sustainable development. More ...
U.S. Intervention in British Guiana: A Cold War Story
Guyana (formerly the colony British Guiana) gained its independence in the 1960’s. The U.S. government saw in this move the possibility of another communist state in Latin America, this one under the leadership of Marxist Cheddi Jagan. In U.S. Intervention, Rabe suggests that the CIA was responsible for funding the labor unrest, race riots, and general chaos that forced Jagan from office in 1964. The U.S.-supported leader Forbes Burnham gained power and went on to lead a twenty-year dictatorship in which he persecuted the majority Indian population. More ...
The Contracted World: New & More Selected Poems
In The Contracted World, Peter Meinke brings us new poems and old, including in this collection work from four of his previous volumes. The poems show what it is like to live and grow up in America; they are full of images of “love, nature, cities, sports, war, and peace” as well as grief, confusion, and death. “Despite feelings of anger and loneliness, the narrator speaks to us in a personal, accessible, and often humorous voice.” More ...
