Dr. Kengor, author of Dupes: How America’s Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a Century, will discuss his historical research on a troubling aspect of American history: the prominent role of the “dupe.” From the Bolshevik Revolution through the Cold War and right up to the present, many progressives have unwittingly aided some of America’s most dangerous opponents.  Dr. Kengor will describe not only how such dupes contributed to history’s most destructive ideology-Communism, which claimed at least 100 million lives-but also why they are so relevant to today’s politics.
