Recent debates about American foreign policy have focused on two themes: whether we should be thinking of the USA in terms of an empire and the degree to which its foreign policy has been shaped by neo-conservative ideas. But who are the neo-conservatives and what is their world outlook?
Dr Stefan Halper, University of Cambridge, and Professor Anne Norton, University of Pennsylvania, debate the issues in a public event at LSE on Tuesday 22 November.
Professor Chris Brown, LSE, will chair this event, which is hosted by LSE's Cold War Studies Centre America as Another Country series.
Neo-Conservatism and the Origins of the New American Empire is on Tuesday 22 November at 6.30pm in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton Street, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
