About this Event:
David Andelman is a longtime columnist for CNN and veteran correspondent for The New York Times and CBS News. In his newly published book “A Red Line in the Sand” he astutely combines history and global politics to help us better understand the exploding number of military, political, and diplomatic crises around the globe. The book provides inside stories of the world’s most intense “red lines,” from diplomatic and military challenges at particular turning points in history to the ones that set the tone of geopolitics today. More red lines exist in the world today than at any other single moment in history. Whether it was the red line in Munich that led to the start of the Second World War, to the red lines in the South China Sea, the Korean Peninsula, Syria and the Middle East.
As the book traverses the globe, Andelman uses original documentary research, previously classified material, interviews with key players, and reportage from more than 80 countries across five decades to help us understand the growth, the successes and frequent failures that have shaped our world today. Andelman provides not just vivid historical context, but a political anatomy of these red lines. How might their failures be prevented going forward? When and how can such lines in the sand help preserve peace rather than tempt conflict?
At this time when we need to better understand Asia and engage with countries in that region, which is challenging due to long standing geo-political and economic rivalries, David Andelman’s book is an essential read and his insight invaluable.
