Book Night: A Red Line in the Sand—An OPC Chat with David Andelman

Join the OPC for cocktails and conversation with OPC Past President David A. Andelman, to discuss his book, A Red Line in the Sand: Diplomacy, Strategy, and the History of Wars That Might Still Happen.

Andelman concludes that more red lines—political, diplomatic, social, military—exist today than at any other single moment in history, many utterly indefensible and destabilizing.

A longtime columnist for CNN and a veteran correspondent for The New York Times and CBS News, Andelman combines history and global politics to help us trace the origins and better understand the exploding number of military, political, and diplomatic crises around the globe.

Questions Andelman will address include: When and how can such lines in the sand help preserve peace rather than tempt conflict? What mistakes were made during the four years of Donald Trump that must urgently be corrected in the early months of Joe Biden?

Deborah Amos, international correspondent for NPR, will moderate.
