U.S. Foreign Policy: Intervention or Restraint? What can we expect from President Trump?

When: Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 7:00 pm
Where: Watertown Free Library • 123 Main St. • Watertown

Stephen Kinzer, author and journalist, will answer these questions when he discusses his new book The True Flag.

Are Americans imperialist or isolationist? Whether the US should intervene and lead or show global restraint is a recurring theme in US foreign policy.  From the imperialist invasions of the 19th and 20th centuries, to the more recent interventions overseas, any action the US takes has major global reverberations.  This debate takes on new meaning as President Trump prepares his global strategy.

Stephen Kinzer is an award-winning foreign correspondent whose articles and books have led the Washington Post to place him “among the best in popular foreign policy storytelling.”  He has written books about Central America, Rwanda, Turkey and Iran.  He writes a world affairs column for The Boston Globe.
