On Wednesday 5 March 2008 prof. Geoffrey Roberts (University College Cork, Ireland) will visit the SOMA-CEGES. He will give a seminar about his recently published book "Stalinīs Wars. From World War to Cold War, 1939-1953" (Yale University Press, 2006). Without ignoring that the Stalin regime was responsible for millions of deaths, Roberts assesses Stalinīs capacities as a world leader, as they gradually grew during the Second World War, and considers him a great statesman. Secondly, he poses that it was in fact Stalinīs intention to continue to collaborate with his wartime western allies after the end of World War II. This of course sheds an utterly interesting light on the outbreak of the Cold War.
The seminar is English spoken and takes place in the conference room of the SOMA-CEGES in Brussels. It starts at 2.30 p.m. Access is free.
