Next Meeting Fri. Jan 10, 2014                      

The End of the Cold War and Reverberations Today

Amb Jack Matlock, US Ambassador to the USSR 1987-1991

==========================================================================

 During his 35 years in the American Foreign Service Jack Matlock rose to become ambassador (Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union) and Special Assistant to the President for National Security. He attended all but one of the U.S. – Soviet summits held in the 20 year period 1972-91 and during the Cuban Missile Crisis translated messages between Kennedy and Khrushchev. After leaving the Foreign Service he became a world-renowned author and historian and taught diplomacy at several colleges in the NorthEast. Four of his books are currently available on Amazon, and our members are invited to bring copies to the meeting for signing. We have invited Sergei Khrushchev to join him at the podium during Q&A.
