Andrew Bacevich, 2018 Ena H. Thompson Distinguished Lecturer, leads a discussion of the core ideas shaping US policies after the Cold War, with Trump’s election a response to the failure of those ideas.
Andrew Bacevich is a war veteran, retired Colonel, New York Times bestselling author, and massively influential historian. He’s also one of our most incisive critics of U.S. foreign policy—35 years of military operations in the Middle East—and how we frame war, terrorism, security, and ‘the other’ at home. Shaking the cobwebs from public discourse, his talks make people listen—on the left and right.
Endowed in 1980 through the generosity of Ena H. Thompson, these annual lectures encourage a broader understanding and appreciation of history.
