David Andelman: A Shattered Peace

A politically charged lecture, looknig at the state of global politics taking the Treaty of Versailles as a starting point.


Taking as a point of departure the Treaty of Versailles, David Andelman, executive editor or Forbes.com, offers a compelling new perspective on the origin of many of today's most critical international issues. He turns the spotlight on the many errors committed by World War I peacemakers that ultimately led to crises from Iraq to Kosovo and wars from the Middle East to Vietnam. He will also discuss the small nations and minor players at Versailles, including figures such as Ho Chi Minh and Charles de Gaulle, who would later become boldfaced names. With a cautionary message for us today, he shows how world leaders dismissed repeated warnings from their experts and laid the groundwork for a host of catastrophic events.
