“WACA’s Cover to Cover conference call”
When: Thursday, March 21, at 2:00-2:30 pm ET
Speaker: Ambassador William Burns
Topic: American Diplomacy
Register now for WACA’s Cover to Cover conference call next Thursday, featuring Ambassador Burns, President of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and former U.S. Deputy Secretary of State, on his forthcoming memoir, The Back Channel, making the case for U.S. diplomacy’s renewal.
Drawing on a trove of newly declassified cables and memos, Amb. Burns gives readers a rare inside look at the practice of American diplomacy. His dispatches from war-torn Chechnya and Qaddafi’s bizarre camp in the Libyan desert and his warnings of the “Perfect Storm” that would be unleashed by the Iraq War will reshape our understanding of history – and inform the policy debates of the future.
