The Successes and Failures of Churchill’s Foreign Policy
Join the John Quincy Adams Society chapter at The King's College at 6:00 PM ET to discuss the many aspects of Winston Churchill’s long career as a foreign policy statesman. Churchill is often pictured in black and white either as the British imperialist or the clairvoyant statesman who saw through Hitler, but his record is in fact more mixed and therefore much more interesting. The panelists will attempt to draw lessons for the present era from both the successes and the failures of Churchill’s leadership. Dr. Joseph Loconte and Dr. Klaus Larres will both bring their historical expertise about Churchill while Dr. David Tubbs will moderate the discussion.

Dr. Klaus Larres is the Richard M. Krasno Distinguished Professor of History and International Affairs at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Larres is one of the world's premier scholars on Winston Churchill's foreign policy especially in the context of the Cold War and the European integration post-World War II. His books on the subject include Churchill’s Cold War: The Politics of Personal Diplomacy and Politics of Illusion: Churchill, Eisenhower, and the German Question, 1945–1955.

Joseph Loconte, PhD is the Director of the B. Kenneth Simon Center for American Studies at the Heritage Foundation. He also serves as a Senior Fellow in Christianity and Culture at The King’s College in New York City. Dr. Loconte has written extensively about Churchill, including a recent article for National Review: “Churchill’s Prophetic Warning: ‘An Iron Curtain Has Descended.”

Professor David Tubbs earned his PhD in politics at Princeton University, concentrating in political philosophy, constitutional law, and Russian studies. He began teaching at King’s in August 2005. In his scholarship, Professor Tubbs writes on topics in political philosophy and constitutional law and contemporary controversies in public policy. Dr. Tubbs is also the faculty adviser for the John Quincy Adams Society.
