A Conversation with Dr. Condoleezza Rice, 66th United States Secretary of State

Date: 
Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - 4:45pm - 6:45pm
Location: 
World Affairs Council Of Philadelphia One South Broad Street, Suite 2M
Philadelphia, PA 19107
United States

Nearly 30 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, former Secretary of State, Dr. Condoleezza Rice comes to Philadelphia to discuss her next book (co-authored with former Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission, Philip Zelikow), To Build A Better World: Choices To End The Cold War And Create A Global Commonwealth, a definitive account of how the Cold War was brought to an end.

This account of one of the 20th Century’s most defining moments will engage audience members with the history that provides context to the geopolitical present. With many pundits claiming that the United States is beginning a “New Cold War” with China, and with tensions seemingly heightening with Russia, can a look back at recent history help us to find a “better world” in our near future?

Dr. Rice will sit in conversation with her co-author, Dr. Philip Zelikow, and moderator Craig Snyder, the Council’s President.
