Forever aggrieved? Yakov Rabkin, Emeritus Professor of History at the University of Montreal

In both cases, national identity has been derived from and fostered by the sense of an existential threat. Is reconciliation with neighbors even possible within such a worldview? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Yakov Rabkin, Emeritus Professor of History at the University of Montreal.
