George F. Kennan: An American Life


In the late 1940s, George Kennan, a U.S. diplomat, wrote articles which set forth the strategy of U.S. policy toward the Soviet Union for decades to come. He would also become one of the most outspoken critics of American diplomacy, politics, and culture during the last half of the 20th century.

Yale historian John Lewis Gaddis began this history almost 30 years ago, interviewing Kennan frequently and gaining complete access to his voluminous diaries and other personal papers. What is revealed in this landmark work by one of today's most important Cold War scholars?

Speaker: John Lewis Gaddis
