Going “outside the wire” — military lingo for leaving the safety of a base — has taught Jason Kander to take risks and make a change rather than settling for the easy option. After you’ve volunteered to put your life on the line with and for your fellow Americans in Afghanistan, cynical politics and empty posturing back home just feel like an insult.

In The Future Is History, Gessen follows the lives of four people born at what promised to be the dawn of democracy.
