7:30 pm


Rawles Hall 100


With the Iraq war well on its way to becoming a debacle of unprecedented proportions and U.S. standing in the world at an all-time low, it is not surprising that the 2008 presidential campaign is focusing to an unusual extent on foreign policy. After assessing the Bush record and putting it in the historical context of the last fifty years, Strobe Talbott will offer suggestions on how the next President can meet the triple challenge he or she will inherit-repairing the damage that Bush's brand of unilateralism has inflicted on the national interest, re-establishing American leadership of the international community, and addressing two urgent threats to the planet: nuclear proliferation and climate change.
