‘On Contact’ With Chris Hedges: Adam Hochschild and the Moral Impulse to Fight

Posted on Sep 5, 2016

On this week’s episode of RT’s “On Contact,” Truthdig columnist Chris Hedges speaks with author and historian Adam Hochschild about rebels whose convictions drove them to enlist in war.

In his latest book, “Spain in Our Hearts: Americans and the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939,” Hochschild chronicles the experiences of Americans who fought fascism in the Spanish Civil War. RT’s Anya Parampil briefly discusses why idealists from the U.S. and Europe made the journey to Spain in the 1930s.
