Saturday, October 10, 2009
Lecture and discussion
Andrew Bacevich, Professor of International Relations and History, Boston University
Vietnam Veteran and noted scholar Dr. Andrew Bacevich will describe the national security consensus that has informed US policy since World War II, and why this consensus persists. He will make the case that the consensus has become antithetical to the nation’s well-being and should be abandoned. Following this event, Dr. Bacevich will give a free lecture, “The Enduring Relevance of the Wisconsin School: What William Appleman Williams Got Right and Where He Went Wrong,” at the Overture Center at 5:30 p.m. as part of the Wisconsin Book Festival.
