Pages Through the Ages is a book discussion group hosted jointly by the Westport Museum for History and Culture and the Library. Discuss War: How Conflict Shaped Us by Margaret MacMillan with Bruce McGuirk and other history buffs. Meetings will alternate between the buildings, so please check the venue prior to attending!
Copies of the book are available at the Westport Library.
The instinct to fight may be innate in human nature, but war—organized violence—comes with organized society. Margaret MacMillan looks at the ways in which war has influenced human society and how, in turn, changes in political organization, technology, or ideologies have affected how and why we fight.
