An Evening on Foreign Policy with Stephen Kinzer

Free, and open to the public, with light pupus served, we invite you to join us for an evening with award-winning foreign correspondent Stephen Kinzer, author of Overthrow.

Kinzer will talk about the Overthrow of Hawai`i, in the context of U.S foreign policy.

 “...Starting with the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1893 and continuing through the Spanish-American War and the Cold War and into our own time, the United States has not hesitated to overthrow governments that stood in the way of its
political and economic goals.”

His most recent book is The True Flag: Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, and the Birth of American Empire.

Kinzer has covered more than 50 countries on five continents. His articles and books have led the Washington Post to place him “among the best in popular foreign policy storytelling.”
