Published 11:27 am Tuesday, April 17, 2018

On Monday, April 23, Hampden-Sydney College hosts “Tyranny Comes Home: The Domestic Fate of U.S. Militarism” author and professor Christopher Coyne as he discusses a new aspect of the symbiotic relationship between foreign interventions and domestic politics.

In the lecture “Tyranny Comes Home: The Domestic Fate of U.S. Militarism,” Christopher Coyne offers alarming insight into incidents such as the shooting in Ferguson, Missouri and the Snowden case. These cases, Coyne argues, tell a common story about contemporary foreign policy and its impact on our civil liberties.

Christopher Coyne is associate director of the F. A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study in Economics, Philosophy, and Politics, and F. A. Harper Professor of Economics at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. In addition, he is also an associate professor of economics and director of graduate studies in the economics department at George Mason University. Coyne specializes in Austrian economics, economic development, emerging democracies, postwar and disaster reconstruction, political economy and social change.
