authors@mit event at The Humanities Library Wed. 9/24

Posted September 23rd, 2008 by Marion Leeds Carroll

Please join us at The MIT Humanities Library as MIT’s Christopher Capozzola introduces his new book.

“Uncle Sam Wants You” tells the gripping story of the American homefront in World War I, revealing how the tensions of mass mobilization led to a significant increase in power in Washington, and made wartime America the scene of some of the nation’s most serious political violence.

“Uncle Sam Wants You” is published by Oxford University Press.

Christopher Capozzola is an Associate Professor of History at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

This event is sponsored by authors@mit, a lecture series cosponsored by MIT Libraries and The MIT Press Bookstore.

When: Wednesday September 24th, 5:30pm

The event is free and wheelchair accessible.
