The year 1606 was a disastrous one for England. There was the plague, and the infamous Gunpowder Plot and unrest and even demonic possession. King James had succeeded Queen Elizabeth and the transition was a difficult one. But it was a great year for William Shakespeare who wrote King Lear, Macbeth and Antony and Cleopatra. How did Shakespeare incorporate what was going on around him in England into his plays? Tonight on Inquiry we talk with JAMES SHAPIRO, the Larry Miller Professor of English at Columbia University about his latest book: THE YEAR OF LEAR: SHAKESPEARE IN 1606.

Sunday, May 29, 2016 - 10:30pm

After the Nuremberg trials and the start of the Cold War, most of the victors in World War II lost interest in prosecuting Nazi war criminals. Many of the lower-ranking perpetrators quickly blended in with the millions who were seeking to rebuild their lives in a new Europe, while those who felt most at risk fled the continent. In his new book,The Nazi Hunters author Andrew Nagorski focuses on the small band of men and women who refused to allow their crimes to be forgotten—and who were determined to track them down to the furthest corners of the globe. Tune in this Sunday evening at 10:30 when Al speaks with author Andrew Nagorski.
