Rachel Maddow | Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power
Listen to MP3 audio
As host of MSNBC's award-winningThe Rachel Maddow Show, Rachel Maddow offers her take on the stories of the day—political and otherwise—and engages in lively debate with guests from all sides of the issues. The show debuted in September 2008 as the most successful show launch in MSNBC history and was named one of the Washington Post’s top shows of the decade. Maddow earned her doctorate in political science at Oxford University, which she attended on a Rhodes scholarship. In her no. 1 New York Times bestseller Drift, Maddow charts the U.S. way of war from Vietnam to the current war in Afghanistan, crossing partisan lines to probe the consequences of the country’s dangerous slide into a state of perpetual war.
Introduced by Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz and Mayor Michael Nutter
