  Add to Calendar 2017-12-13 17:00 2017-12-13 19:00 Europe/Paris Max Weber Lecture: Prof. Odd Arne Westad (Harvard Kennedy School) - The Cold War: A World History

In The Cold War: A New History, Odd Arne Westad offers a new perspective on a century when great power rivalry and ideological battle transformed every corner of our globe. From Soweto to Hollywood, Hanoi, and Hamburg, young men and women felt they were fighting for the future of the world. The Cold War may have begun on the perimeters of Europe, but it had its deepest reverberations in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, where nearly every community had to choose sides. And these choices continue to define economies and regimes across the world.

This lecture will sketch a new history of the global conflict between capitalism and communism since the late 19th century, and it will provide the larger context for how today’s international affairs came into being.

Federico Romero (HEC Professor) will introduce the Lecture.
Victor Petrov (HEC MW Fellow) will chair the Lecture.
