SPECIAL EVENT: French Series: A Virtual Book Talk with Robert Zoellick
The Embassy of France in the U.S. hosts a conversation with Robert Zoellick, former President of the World Bank, about his latest book: America in the world: A History of U.S. Diplomacy and Foreign Policy. The discussion will be moderated by Steve Clemons, editor at large, the Hill.
 

The book identifies five traditions that have emerged from America's encounters with the world: the importance of North America; the importance of trading, transnational, and technological relations; changing attitudes toward alliances; the importance of public support; and the belief that American policy should serve a larger purpose.

Robert B. Zoellick has served as Deputy Secretary of State, U.S. Trade Representative, and President of the World Bank. Earlier in his career, Zoellick served as Counselor to the Secretary of the Treasury and Deputy Chief of Staff at the White House and Assistant to President George W. Bush. Zoellick is now a Senior Fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.
