Mead to discuss foreign policy, Nov. 19
Posted November 15, 2007; 04:19 p.m.
Foreign policy expert Walter Russell Mead will present a talk titled "The Protocols of the Elders of Greenwich: The Secret American Plot to Rule the World" at 4:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 19, in 16 Robertson Hall.
Mead's lecture title is based on ideas included in his most recent book, "God and Gold: Britain, America and the Making of the Modern World." The book is a study of 400 years of conflict between Anglophone powers and rivals ranging from monarchies in Spain and France to 20th-century Communists and Fascists to al-Qaida today.
Mead is the Henry A. Kissinger senior fellow for U.S. foreign policy at the Council on Foreign Relations. He writes regularly on international affairs for numerous publications, including The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Foreign Affairs and The New Yorker.
The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and the Center for the Study of Religion as part of a series on "The Crossroads of Religion and Politics."
