Why This Book?

The goal of the One Book, One Campus program is to encourage critical thought and discussion among members of the IU South Bend Community. With this goal in mind, a committee comprised of Alfred Guillaume, Michele Russo, Bill Hojnacki, Dave Vollrath, Eileen Bender, Louise Collins, Linda Fisher, Ken Smith, Marsha Heck, and Julie Elliott explored various titles with the criteria that the book be one which would challenge and inspire, be in print and reasonably priced, and have a wide crossover appeal, something which could be discussed in a variety of classes. A vote was held, and War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning by Chris Hedges was chosen.
