Can U.S. Foreign Policy Be Fixed?
Humanities Lecture Series

Thu., Nov. 17, 2005, 7:30pm - 9:30pm
Location: Kansas Union-Ballroom
Samantha Power, founding Executive Director of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy and Harvard adjunct lecturer, will draw from her most recent book, A Problem From Hell: America and the Age of Genocide, winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction and National Book Critics Circle Award. A Problem From Hell chronicles the role of the U.S in the history of genocide, and asks the haunting question: why do American leaders who vow "never again" repeatedly fail to stop genocide? Power also has a background in journalism, covering the war in Yugoslavia from 1993 to 1996 for US News and World Report.

This event is co-sponsored by the KU School of Law.
