Our first GDS (Geostrategic Dialogue Series) begins with Professor Hall GARDNER.
He will be presenting his new book, entitled : “Crimea, Global Rivalry and the Vengeance of History”, published in August 2015 by Palgrave.
Here is his profile, taken from the American University website (https://www.aup.edu/profile/hgardner) :
“Professor Gardner examines inter-state and inter-societal conflict with a comparative historical orientation. His focus is on the diplomatic origins of war, yet more specifically on deliberating the phenomenon of war’s eruption and its regional and global ramifications, with an eye toward conflict resolution. His research blends a historical and theoretical approach with contemporary international affairs, concentrating on questions involving NATO and European Union enlargement, the collapse of the Soviet Union and its impact upon China and Eurasia in general, as well as the global ramifications of the “war on terrorism.” Gardner is additionally an internationally published poet.”
