Louis Menand, Harvard Professor, New Yorker staff writer, and Pulitzer-Prize winning author of The Metaphysical Club discusses his new book, The Free World: Art and Thought in the Cold War in which he tells the story of American culture from the end of World War II to Vietnam and examines how the ideal of ‘freedom’ applied to causes that ranged from anti-communism and civil rights to a new sensibility defined by radical acts of self-creation and freewheeling experimentation.
