Host: American Enterprise Institute. Martin Peretz, editor-in-chief of The New Republic, will deliver the October Bradley Lecture at AEI. Mr. Peretz will discuss Herbert Croly, a founding editor of The New Republic, and his seminal book, The Promise of American Life. Promise of American Life made quite a stir when it was released one hundred years ago, and influenced the thinking of many, including the followers of Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. The New Republic was born out of this book. Many controversies followed.
