December 11, 2009 — David Hoffman, contributing editor at The Washington Post, will join us for a discussion of his recent book, The Dead Hand: The Untold Story of the Cold War and its Dangerous Legacy.
What are the continuing dangers of the Cold War arms race? How does this legacy effect current nuclear nonproliferation policy? How is the psyche of Russian leadership different today than from immediately after the Cold War, and how does this impact arms control negotiations?
Security for a New Century is a bipartisan study group for Congress. We meet regularly with U.S. and international policy professionals to discuss the post-Cold War and post-9/11 security environment. All discussions are off-the-record. It is not an advocacy venue.
