Author of Kissinger on Kissinger: Reflections on Diplomacy, Grand Strategy, and Leadership

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 AT 7:30PM
LECTURE & BOOK SIGNING
FREE ADMISSION

Winston Lord — former U.S. Ambassador to the People’s Republic of China — will discuss the Nixon administration’s vision for diplomacy with China, the Soviet Union, Vietnam, and the Middle East, which laid the foundations for geopolitics as we know them today.

Kissinger on Kissinger represents the one and only collection of Oral History interviews with Dr. Henry Kissinger. The interviews were produced by the Nixon Foundation, and conducted by Ambassador Lord, Dr. Kissinger’s one-time associate in the Nixon White House.

The revealing interviews capture Kissinger’s thoughts on the specific challenges that he faced during his tenure as National Security Advisor and Secretary of State, his general advice on leadership and international relations, and stunning portraits of the larger-than-life world leaders of the era who he knew, worked with, and admired.

Nicholas Sarantakes on Nixon and Sports

Faninchief
Author of Fan in Chief: Richard Nixon and American Sports, 1969-1974

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15 AT 7PM
LECTURE & BOOK SIGNING

Nicholas Evan Sartantakes, Professor of History at the Naval War College, will discuss President Nixon’s intertwined, and relatively unknown, relationship with the spectacle of American sports.

While in office, President Nixon did a lot more than just throw out the first baseball of the season; he was a genuine baseball and football fan, and his interest and engagement in American sports had an impact on the culture of the nation.

In this in-depth study, Sarantakes argues that sports are central to understanding Richard Nixon. When watching sports or attending athletic events, Nixon was his most unguarded and articulate. Consequently, Nixon was able to use sports in a way that communicated a recreational pastime, allowing him to effectively express his leadership, values, and policies to the American people.
