Meet Andrew Krepinevich and Barry Watts, Authors of ‘The Last Warrior’ @ Nixon Library
Apr 21 @ 7:00 PM

KrepinevichCo-authors of The Last Warrior: Andrew Marshall and the Shaping of Modern American Defense Strategy

Andrew Marshall is a Pentagon legend. For more than four decades he served as Director of the Office of Net Assessment, the Pentagon’s internal think tank, under twelve defense secretaries and eight administrations.

Following the Cold War, Marshall successfully used net assessment to anticipate emerging disruptive shifts in military affairs, including the revolution in precision warfare and the rise of China as a major strategic rival of the United States.

In The Last Warrior, Andrew Krepinevich and Barry Watts—both former members of Marshall’s staff—trace Marshall’s intellectual development from his upbringing in Detroit during the Great Depression to his decades in Washington as an influential behind-the-scenes advisor on American defense strategy. The result is a unique insider’s perspective on the changes in US strategy from the dawn of the Cold War to the present day.

Meet Ian Bremmer, Author of ‘Superpower’
May 28 @ 7:00 PM

Ian Bremmer_SuperpowerAuthor of Superpower: Three Choices for America’s Role in the World

America’s top global policy expert calls for a complete rethinking of our nation’s role in tomorrow’s world.
Bremmer explores three choices, each with its own benefits and drawbacks:

“Independent America” argues that it’s time for Washington to declare independence from the responsibility to solve everyone else’s problems.

“Moneyball America” acknowledges that we can’t manage every international challenge but asserts that we must defend U.S. interests wherever they’re threatened.

“Indispensable America” insists that only Washington can promote the values on which global stability increasingly depends in our hyper-connected world.

Ian Bremmer is president and founder of Eurasia Group, the leading global political risk research and consulting firm. He is a foreign affairs columnist and editor-at-large at TIME, a contributor to the Financial Times and Reuters and a national bestselling author.

Includes two tickets and one signed book.
