How Civil Wars Start with Barbara F. Walter

In January of 2020, we witnessed an attack on our capitol by American citizens. At the time, many of us said that we didn’t think it could happen here. But it did happen, and it was just one event on a timeline of events that has our guest—and should have each of us–concerned about the future of our country. This week, I’m joined by Barbara F. Walter. Barbara is a professor of International Relations at the School of Global Policy and Strategy at the University of California, San Diego, a life member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and author of How Civil Wars Start: And How to Stop Them, which is now available.
