LIVE STREAM: H.R. McMaster on US Foreign Policy Lessons and Priorities

Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, Former National Security Advisor. Moderated by Cécile Shea.

H.R. McMaster on US Foreign Policy Lessons and Priorities

Across multiple administrations since the end of the Cold War, American foreign policy has been misconceived, inconsistent, and poorly implemented, argues General H. R. McMaster. As a result, America and the free world have fallen behind rivals in power and influence. How can the US improve its strategic competence and prevail in complex competitions against adversaries? Drawing on 34 years in the US Army with multiple tours of duty in battlegrounds overseas, and 13 months as national security advisor in the Trump White House, General McMaster and Council President Ivo Daalder will discuss the threats facing the nation, the need for Americans to transcend partisan politics, and better educate themselves about the challenges to the free world.

Copies of H.R. McMaster's latest book Battlegrounds: The Fight to Defend the Free World are available for sale from our local Chicago book partner The Book Cellar.
