Redeeming the Revolution with Dr. Joseph Lenti

December 18, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

In his new book, Redeeming the Revolution: the State and Organized Labor in Post-Tlatelolco Mexico, Dr. Joseph U. Lenti describes events that, although they happened half a century ago in a place far away, have increasing relevance in today’s America. Through its treatment of themes including political populism, class conflict, workers’ activism, and government repression, Lenti’s book demonstrates how a government may use history, legacy, and ideology to appease the masses and obscure the truth.

Lenti is a native of Southbridge and a graduate of Southbridge High School (Class of 1996). Lenti has a B.S. in history from Northeastern University and a M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of New Mexico. Since 2010 he has been a professor of Latin American history at Eastern Washington University in Spokane, WA.

This will be his first ever academic talk in his hometown. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing following the discussion.
