A Meet the Author Event

Who: Michael Klare, Director, Five College Program in Peace & World Security Studies; Defense Correspondent, The Nation

Event: While oil, natural gas, uranium, and coal are being depleted at an ever-accelerating rate, what are governments doing to ensure access to the resources vital for the functioning of modern industrial societies? How is the pursuit for these resources shaping the international balance of power? To offer insight into the energy-driven dynamic that is reconfiguring the international landscape, Michael Klare joins the Council to discuss his new book Rising Powers, Shrinking Planet. Klare has written extensively on U.S. defense policy, the arms trade, global resource politics, and world security affairs. He is also the author of thirteen books, including Blood and Oil and Resource Wars.
