Dr. Michael Mandelbaum, the Christian A. Herter Professor and Director, American Foreign Policy Program, Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, will deliver the Hall Distinguished Lecture at 7:30 p.m. October 15 in John Gano Memorial Chapel on the William Jewell College campus in Liberty, Mo. Dr. Mandelbaum’s lecture is entitled “Just How Green Can We Be?” and addresses the tough political, economic, social and cultural challenges that the U.S. faces if it is really to “go green.” The public is invited to attend, and no reservations or tickets are required.

Michael Mandelbaum is one of America’s leading authorities on international affairs, known for his ability to explain, in clear and accessible ways, the meaning and consequences of complicated global developments and trends.

His classic book, The Ideas That Conquered the World: Peace, Democracy, and Free Markets in the Twenty-First Century, has been translated into seven languages including Chinese and Arabic. “The purpose of the book,” says Mandelbaum, “was to provide a framework for understanding all of the international issues of the 21st century, from globalization to terrorism, from Chinese succession politics to Latin American economic crises.” The Financial Times called it “a brilliant book” and Tom Friedman praised it as “important and compelling.”

His latest book is Democracy’s Good Name: The Rise and the Risks of the World’s Most Popular Form of Government. His other works include The Case for Goliath, The Fate of Nations and The Meaning of Sports. Educated at Yale, Cambridge and Harvard, he has been a guest on NPR, Face The Nation, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and Larry King Live. From 1986-2004, he was Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. The World Affairs Councils of America named him one of the most influential people in American foreign policy.

He is currently working on a book on the global economy, a large portion of which will be devoted to the BRICs — Brazil, Russia, India, and China — as well as a book on the future of American foreign policy.

Dr. Mandelbaum is serving as the Hall Distinguished Visiting Professor at William Jewell College.
William Jewell College is committed to bringing together talented students and gifted faculty mentors within a vibrant community sparked by a rigorous and intentional liberal arts curriculum. A full range of personal and professional development experiences are presented by the selective national liberal arts college’s location within the Kansas City metroplex of more than two million.
