Date: Wednesday 22 January 2003
Time: 6.30pm
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building with a live video link to the New Theatre, East Building

The US has more power than any other state since Rome. How should it use this power? What are its limitations? And what are the implications for the foreign policy of the Bush administration and its new national security strategy?

Professor Joseph Nye is the dean of Kennedy School of Government and author of "The Paradox of American Power: Why the World's Only Superpower Can't Go It Alone". Previously, he served as assistant secretary of defence for international affairs.
