AMERICA ABROAD:
THE LEGACY OF US INTERVENTION 
Stephen Kinzer, Visiting Fellow, Watson Institute for International Studies, Brown University; Author and Reporter; and former Foreign Correspondent, The New York Times

“There is, as far as I know, only one certain rule in international relations: interference by one country in the affairs of another causes resentment. It is sure to produce a result exactly opposite of that intended,” said Allen Dulles, America’s fifth director of Central Intelligence. Now, more than half a century later, the number of US foreign interventions keeps growing: Vietnam, Iraq, Iran, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Libya—is Syria next? Join The Chicago Council and Stephen Kinzer for a review and explanation of the past, present, and future of American foreign intervention.

Stephen Kinzer is an award-winning foreign correspondent who has covered more than 50 countries on five continents. He is currently a visiting fellow at the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University, where he teaches international relations. Previously he was professor of international relations at Boston University, and professor of military studies at Northwestern University. Kinzer was formerly a foreign correspondent for The New York Times, with postings as the bureau chief in Managua, Bonn, Berlin, and Istanbul. Before joining The New York Times, Kinzer was the Latin America correspondent for the Boston Globe. He is the author of several books including Reset: Iran, Turkey, and America’s Future, and All the Shah’s Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror.

His latest book, The Brothers: John Foster Dulles, Allen Dulles, and Their Secret World War, will be available for purchase and signing after the program.
