Andrew Bacevich, author, historian, and president of the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, will join the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute for a virtual conversation at 10:00 a.m. CT Thursday, September 9.
Institute Director John Shaw will interview Bacevich about his new book, "After the Apocalypse: America’s Role in a World Transformed," and his work at the Quincy Institute.
After the Apocalypse examines the United States’ foreign policy based upon “military supremacy” and explores how the events of 2020 have exposed the shortcomings of the nation’s national security policy. “Put simply, basic U.S. policy must change,” Bacevich writes in the book’s introduction.
Bacevich has written or edited more than a dozen books, including New York Times bestseller "The Limits of Power: The End of American Exceptionalism." His writing also has appeared in the Times, the London Review of Books, and the American Conservative. He served in the Army, is professor emeritus of history and international relations at Boston University, and is the founder and president of the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, which, according to its mission statement, “promotes ideas that move U.S. foreign policy away from endless war and toward vigorous diplomacy in the pursuit of international peace.”
This event is part of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute’s Understanding Our New World virtual conversation series with government and private sector leaders, policy experts, political analysts, authors, and journalists.
