What began as a revolutionary movement  has turned into a nightmare. Syria is torn apart by Islamist militias, most notoriously the Islamic State. Meanwhile Russian bombs rain down on civilians, while American politicians threaten to increase U.S. intervention. How did this happen? Where did ISIS come from? How do we explain this disaster and its tragic consequences?

Join us for a presentation followed by discussion.
