This lecture is now virtual.

Exploring the impact of the 1967 Six-Day War on Israel, Professor Eran Kaplan will examine the new political reality that emerged in the region after the war. He will discuss the profound social, economic and cultural impact of the war and its aftermath on Israel, as it transformed from a collectivist, socialist society into a more free-market, individualistic society that looked westward, beyond the Atlantic for inspiration and support.
