Memoirs and History:The Evolving Story of the George W. Bush Administration
Friday, February 1, 2013 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM (CST)
Melvin Leffler, the Edward R. Stettinius Chair of Modern American History at the University of Virginia and one of the nation's foremost diplomatic historians, will address the foreign policies of the George W. Bush administration. He will focus on the myriad memoirs produced by members and contemporaries of the administration, and what both their agreements and disagreements can tell us about the complexities of the American foreign policy in the pre- and post- 9/11 world.
Copies of Dr. Leffler's books, For the Soul of Mankind, and In Uncertain Times, will be available for sale, and the author will be available for signing afterwards.
Hors d'oeuvres and drinks will be served after the lecture as well.
