Lessons From Iraq: Washington Book Party
June 22, 2008 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Part of getting beyond the worst foreign policy disaster in U.S. history will involve agreeing on its lessons.
IPS Research Fellow Miriam Pemberton has teamed with New America Foundation Fellow William Hartung to produce a short, affordable compilation of best thinking on the policies this war should allow us to put permanently behind us. (Read Pemberton’s introduction to the book.)
Joseph Stiglitz and Linda Bilmes on war cost accounting tricks. Michael Klare on wars for oil. Hans Blix, the man who told the world the truth about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, on international action to avoid the next such war. Busboy’s owner Andy Shallal on wars to spread democracy. And a dozen others.
Join Pemberton, Hartung and Shallal, to celebrate the publication of this book and debate its lessons.
