U.S. Ambassador to Russia Lectures cadets
The Stanford Professor and former U.S. Ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul, delivered a guest lecture to cadets enrolled in SS307 and several other Department of Social Sciences (SOSH), Defense & Strategic Studies (DSS), and Department of Foreign Languages (DFL) courses. Ambassador McFaul's lecture was based on his most recent book, "From Cold War to Hot Peace: An American Ambassador in Putin's Russia," which blends the Ambassador's memoirs from his time in government with his penetrating analysis of Russian politics, foreign policy, and U.S.-Russian relations. The talk was jointly sponsored by the Department of Social Sciences and the Modern War Institute and provided cadets with a timely discussion of Russia's recent aggressive actions across the globe.
