Silver, Sword, and Stone: A History of Latin America
History with David M. Rubenstein
Featuring: David M. Rubenstein, Marie Arana

In recent years, waves of asylum-seeking refugees at the southern border have dominated national headlines and ignited contentious debates on how to address the crisis. But why and what are they fleeing? Award-winning author Marie Arana examines critical driving forces that have shaped Latin America for the past millennium—including exploitation, violence, and religion—and continue to reverberate to the present day.

David M. Rubenstein (moderator), co-founder and co-executive chairman of the Carlyle Group, is the author of The American Story: Conversations with Master Historians and How to Lead: Wisdom from the World's Greatest CEOs, Founders, and Game Changers.

Marie Arana is the literary director of the Library of Congress and the author of Silver, Sword, and Stone: Three Crucibles in the Latin American Story.
