Author military strategist Robert Chandler to speak at The U
As part of the "Edmund Burke Distinguished Speaker Series," Chandler will discuss topics from his book, "Shadow World" as well as provide insight on international affairs, including the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. Chandler will also be available to sign copies of his book in Farber Hall following the presentation.
Chandler received his Ph.D. in political science from George Washington University and is a graduate of the State Department’s 10-month Executive Seminar in National and International Affairs. An author of several articles and five books, including "The New Face of War," "Counterforce," "Tomorrow’s War, Today’s Decisions," and "The U.S. Propaganda Campaign in Vietnam," Chandler conducted research in support of his latest book, "Shadow World: Resurgent Russia, the Global New Left, and Radical Islam," by tracking the creation and evolution of the Communist organized Anti-Globalization and Anti-War movements between 2000 and 2008. In addition to attending numerous Marxist conferences and teach-ins, Chandler also attended Communist planning sessions, meetings and more than 100 street protests as part of his research for "Shadow World."
