Dr. John Mearsheimer will discuss his new book, The Great Delusion: Liberal Dreams and International Realities, on Thursday, September 27, 2018, from 6 – 7 p.m. The event, hosted by the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University will take place in the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center located on the Texas A&M University campus. A book signing and reception will immediately follow the event.

In his talk, Dr. Mearsheimer will lay out the key arguments from his new book which explains why a policy of liberal hegemony is doomed to fail. He argues that the United States should adopt a more restrained foreign policy based on a sound understanding of how nationalism and realism constrain great powers abroad.

Dr. Mearsheimer is the R. Wendell Harrison Distinguished Service Professor of Political Science at the University of Chicago. He has published many books including Conventional Deterrence, The Tragedy of Great Power Politics, and Why Leaders Lie: The Truth about Lying in International Politics. Additionally, he has authored many articles that have appeared in academic journals and the popular press. Dr. Mearsheimer earned his PhD in government from Cornell University.
