Daniel Golden—Spy Schools | Labyrinth Books Princeton | Tuesday, 06. March 2018

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Daniel Golden, senior editor at ProPublica, exposes how academia has become a major target of foreign and domestic espionage—and why that is troubling news for our nation's security and democratic values. Labyrinth Books Princeton and the Princeton Public Library invite you to join us for a presentation and discussion.

Grounded in extensive research and reporting, "Spy Schools" (Henry Holt) reveals that globalization—the influx of foreign students and professors and the outflow of Americans for study, teaching, and conferences abroad—has transformed U.S. higher education into a front line for international spying. Universities ignore or even condone this interference, despite the tension between their professed global values and the nationalistic culture of espionage.
