An influential historian, Andrew Bacevich sees the political, military, and economic crises that face America as deeply interconnected. Applauded for reaching across political lines and speaking blunt truth to power, regardless of who is in office, Bacevich offers bracingly pragmatic talks that will help steer the country back on course.Andrew Bacevich is Professor of International Relations and History at Boston University; he previously taught at Johns Hopkins University and at West Point, where he graduated in 1969. Time calls him “one of the most provocative—as in thought-provoking—national-security writers out there today.” His book “Breach of Trust: How Americans Failed Their Soldiers and Their Country” is a blistering critique of the gulf between America’s soldiers and the society that sends them off to war.Bacevich’s bestseller, “Washington Rules,” is a critique of the country’s military industrial complex. In his previous book, “The Limits of Power,” he deconstructed decades of disastrous foreign policies, arguing that America’s lust for empire and its sense of entitlement, coupled with its myth of indestructibility, has deluded and diminished the nation, at home and in the eyes of the world. “This compact, meaty volume ought to be on the reading list of every candidate for national office,” The Washington Post wrote.Andrew Bacevich also holds a Ph.D. in American Diplomatic History from Princeton. With the US Army, he served during the Vietnam War, and has held posts in Germany and the Persian Gulf; he retired, as a Colonel, in the early 1990s. Bacevich’s books include “The New American Militarism: How Americans Are Seduced by War,” and “American Empire: The Realities and Consequences of U. S. Diplomacy.” Bacevich has also written for The Atlantic, Foreign Affairs, and The New York Times, and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.Contact a speaker booking agent to check availability on Andrew Bacevich and other top speakers and celebrities.
