Jeffrey A. Engel - When the World Seemed New: George H. W. Bush and the End of the Cold War

Upcoming Event
Sunday, November 12, 2017 at 1:00 pm

As Engel documents in this detailed account of President George H. W. Bush’s foreign policy, Bush was exactly the leader the post-Cold War world needed. Engel, director of the Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University and editor of The China Diary of George H. W. Bush, reports Bush’s astute handling of several crises, including his rallying of a coalition against Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait; charts his work to strengthen NATO, unify Germany, and stabilize Eastern European states; and details his response to China’s repression of the Tiananmen Square uprising. Engel draws on previously classified documents and interviews with key policy makers, as well as the former president, refuting old views of Bush as overly cautious.
