Since the dawn of civilization, land stewardship has served as the foundation for how societies coalesce and interact. In a wide-ranging conversation that examines European imperialism, the dispossession of Native American populations, and Joseph Stalin’s brutal collectivization in Soviet territories, bestselling author Simon Winchester illuminates how humanity’s drive to acquire territory and wield its power has so definitively shaped history.

Simon Winchester, OBE, is the author of Land: How the Hunger for Ownership Shaped the Modern World. David M. Rubenstein (moderator), co-founder and co-executive chairman of the Carlyle Group, is the author of numerous books, including The American Experiment: Dialogues on a Dream.
