The War and Society Roundtable is a joint community and university monthly reading group. Sponsored by Southern Miss’s Center for the Study of War and Society and the Hattiesburg Public Library, this semester's Roundtable focuses on books dealing with deception in history.  A friendly, but spirited discussion about the book will be moderated by Dr. Daniel Capper from Southern Miss.

The Roundtable is a great way for community members, faculty, and students to interact while exploring topics of mutual interest.  Copies of each month’s books -- provided by the Library and through a generous grant from The Mississippi Humanities Council -- are available for loan at the Hattiesburg Public Library well in advance of each meeting.  The Roundtable is free to the public and will be held Tuesday, October 8th at 6pm at the Hattiesburg Public Library.  

This Roundtable discussion will feature, The CIA's Secret War in Tibet by Kenneth J. Conboy and James Morrison.   

The CIA's Secret War in Tibet takes readers from training camps in the Colorado Rockies to the scene of clandestine operations in the Himalayas, chronicling the agency's help in securing the Dalai Lama's safe passage to India and subsequent initiation of one of the most remote covert campaigns of the Cold War.
