Klaus Larres, a Distinguished Visiting Scholar at the Kluge Center of the Library of Congress, will examine the political, military and monetary turmoil of the 1970s and draw possible lessons for today’s current affairs.
According to Larres, the 1970s, like today, were characterized by controversial military engagements, deep political divisions and severe financial disruptions. Larres will describe the Nixon/Kissinger approach to overcoming U.S. "decline" in an increasingly multilateral world and analyze whether this approach is still relevant for the current administration.
