Constructing Myths of America with Mark Danner

Constructing Myths of America with Mark Danner

 

Constructing Myths of America with Mark Danner from Mark Danner on Vimeo.

 

Mark Danner, reporter, professor, and author, has reported on revolutions, wars, and most recently the torture of detainees under the Bush administration for years.

He weaves together these threads into a complex picture of American foreign policy and its effects around the world—as well as on the way we think and feel here at home—in Stripping Bare the Body: Politics Violence War, his latest book. He joins Laura Flanders in the studio on GRITtv to discuss the book, and hopes and fears for the U.S. under Obama.
