Historian Nathaniel Philbrick on His Book "Why Read Moby-Dick?"

Host Gene Bradley interviews historian Nathaniel Philbrick about his book "Why Read Moby-Dick?" 

Moby-Dick is perhaps the greatest of the Great American Novels, yet its length and esoteric subject matter create an aura of difficulty that too often keeps readers at bay. In his National Book Award- winning bestseller, "In the Heart of the Sea," Nathaniel Philbrick unpacked the story of the wreck of the whaleship Essex, the real-life incident that inspired Melville to write Moby- Dick. Now, he sets his sights on the fiction itself, offering a cabin master’s tour of a spellbinding novel rich with adventure and history.

Host Per Fagereng interviews Conn Hallinan, columnist for Foreign Policy In Focus, about two of his recent articles.
In "Death at a Distance: The U.S. Air War," Hallinan says "an enormous intensification of U.S. bombardments" in Iraq and Afghanistan entails an "increasing number of civilian casualties ... and the growing role of pilot-less killers in the conflict."
