Description

In his new book, The Great Experiment, Strobe Talbott, former Deputy Secretary of State (1994 – 2001) and current president of the Brookings Institution, recounts the progression to a global nation (i.e. The League of Nations and the U.N.). Through the lens of history and personal experience, he assesses the prospects for global cooperation and the United States’ role in the process. What can we learn from empires and conflicts of the past? Can a world made up of many nations govern itself peacefully? Talbott joins us tonight to give us an insider’s opinion of current United States foreign policy and explain why he believes we should take the lead in multilateral global politics for the future.
