How do we prevent war? How do we maintain peace? These questions have been posed by nations and people throughout history.
The insights of historian and Hoover Institution, Senior Fellow Victor Davis Hanson guide this documentary investigation of the United States’ successful deterrence of enemy aggression in the past, and the efforts to sustain it in an era of rogue nations and nuclear proliferation.
Concessions often bring about peace in the short term, defusing tensions for a while, but the aggressor’s initial demands are not forgotten and, in fact, often bolstered with time.
The lessons of appeasement versus deterrence are hard-learned time and time again.
The Price of Peace examines the use of deterrence of enemy aggression in the past, and the efforts to sustain it in the current era of rogue nations and nuclear proliferation.
Following the screening, Peter Robinson, host of Uncommon Knowledge, will interview Victor Davis Hanson about the film. :
The Price of Peace will be airing on the PBS network starting in late March.
