The Munk School of Global Affairs presents

Why Dissent Matters with William Kaplan and Bob Rae

Join William Kaplan for the launch of his book Why Dissent Matters: Because Some People See Things the Rest of Us Miss on Wednesday, October 4. It will be held in the Campbell Conference Facility in Toronto, ON.

In Why Dissent Matters, William Kaplan shows that dissent is noisy, messy, inconvenient, and almost always time-consuming, but that suppressing it is usually a mistake. Drawing attention to the voices behind international protests such as Occupy Wall Street and Boycott, Divest, and Sanction, he contends that we don’t have to do what dissenters want, but we should listen to what they say.

The launch is presented by the Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History as part of their Books That Matter Series.

The Honourable Bob Rae will be commentator for this event. Books available for purchase. Please register online by clicking HERE.
