Cambridge in America will host a conversation with Brendan Simms, director of the Centre for Geopolitics and co-author with Charlie Laderman of “Hitler’s American Gamble: Pearl Harbor and Germany’s March to Global War.” Light refreshments will be served, and a Q&A will follow Brendan’s talk.
"The greatest strength of Simms and Laderman’s book is its success in accomplishing something supremely difficult: It reminds us how contingent even the most significant historical events can be, how many other possibilities lurked beyond the ones that actually happened – and how even the greatest leaders often have only a shaky grasp of what’s happening,” writes The New York Times Book Review.
Professor Simms is an expert on European geopolitics, past and present, and he is a frequent contributor to print and broadsheet media. He has advised governments and parliaments, and spoken at Westminster, in the European parliament and at think-tanks in the United Kingdom, the United States and in many Eurozone countries. The Centre for Geopolitics is designed to draw together all these interests. He teaches at both undergraduate and graduate level in the Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS) and the Faculty of History.
