Mel Goodman Presentation on "America's Russian Problem: A New Chapter"

Twenty-five years ago, the United States had an important strategic opportunity to remake its foreign policy because of the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact and the Soviet Union, an opportunity that has been largely squandered by subsequent administrations. Now the Trump administration must deal with the issue in the wake of Russian involvement in the presidential election; worsening bilateral relations due to Putin's actions in Ukraine and Syria; and the confusion created by a new national security team in Washington that has no obvious plan or policy. Meanwhile, important decisions must be taken regarding arms control and disarmament as well as policy in East and Central Europe. The talk will speculate on where we go from here. 

Mel Goodman will give a lunchtime presentation discussing US-Russian relations as part of the “US Role in a Changing World” monthly series at the Woman’s National Democratic Club on April 27th. His latest book, National Insecurity: The Cost of American Militarism, will be available for purchase and signing.
