Has America gone too far in asserting its political, military, and cultural might in the world? If so, what does this mean for the way in which we live our lives? That’s the subject of America Unbalanced: An Historical, Ecological, and International Perspective, a panel discussion conducted Saturday, March 19 at the Virginia Festival of the Book.

Held in the Charlottesville City Council chambers, this 77-minute discussion is moderated by Katherine McNamara, the editor of the journal Archipelago. The three panelists are Geoffrey R. Stone (Perilous Times: Free Speech in Wartime from the Sedition Act of 1798 to the War on Terrorism), Hank Shugart (How the Earthquake Bird Got its Name and Other Tales of an Unbalanced Nature) and Tom Miller (Jack Ruby’s Kitchen Sink).
