Co-sponsored by World Policy Institute and the Overseas Press Club







A revealing look at the powerful lessons the Treaty of Versailles has for us today




With author David Andelman, Executive Editor of forbes.com



Discussion lead by New York Times Assistant Managing Editor Craig Whitney




Veteran correspondent David Andelman offers a compelling new perspective on the origin of many of today’s most critical international issues. He turns the spotlight on the many errors committed by World War I peacemakers that ultimately led to crises from Iraq to Kosovo and wars from the Middle East to Vietnam. He focuses, too, on the small nations and minor players at Versailles, including figures such as Ho Chi Minh and Charles de Gaulle, who would later become boldfaced names. With a cautionary message for us today, he shows how world leaders dismissed repeated warnings from their experts and laid the groundwork for a host of catastrophic events.
