Andrew J. Bacevich / America's War for the Greater Middle East: Origins and Conduct (Tanner Lecture #1)

Since the promulgation of the Carter Doctrine in 1980, the Greater Middle East has been the site of continuous American military engagement. In the decades that followed, U.S. forces invaded, occupied, garrisoned, bombed, raided, or otherwise made their presence felt in well over two dozen countries with a predominantly Muslim population. The Tanner lectures will take stock of this undertaking, which continues today with no end in sight.
This event is co-sponsored with the Office of the President. Please note that the Tanner Lecture includes two lectures and two associated discussion sessions. All events are free and open to the public.
