Dear Colleagues, The National History Center is pleased to announce that James Graham Wilson will be speaking at the next Washington History Seminar on Monday, April 28. Would you please circulate this announcement to anyone who might be interested?
In this presentation to the Seminar based on his book, The Triumph of Improvisation, Wilson takes a long view of the end of the Cold War, from the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan to Operation Desert Storm. Wilson argues that adaptation, improvisation, and engagement by individuals in positions of power ended the specter of a nuclear holocaust. Eschewing the notion of a coherent grand strategy to end the Cold War, Wilson illuminates how leaders made choices and reacted to events they did not foresee.
