George Kennan: Conscience and Critic Sold Out
Thursdays, 5:45 - 7:45 pm
June 13 - July 25 (class will not meet July 4)

Few people were both as influential and ignored as George F. Kennan, the American diplomat credited with originating the Cold War "containment" policy who later deplored how containment became an open-ended, militarized crusade. This seminar will examine some of Kennan's important writings and assess whether there can be a place in public affairs for his style of dispassionate but deeply-felt analysis. Please read pages 1 - 71 of George Kennan: A Study of Character for the first session. Six sessions, $170.

Joseph Harrington holds an M.A. in history from the University of Connecticut. He has led numerous Newberry seminars.
