Luncheon Details

Noon Luncheon, Program & Book Signing
Hotel Crescent Court

The oceans have beguiled explorers, emboldened conquerors, and connected us for millennia. Like many who have sailed before him, James Stavridis has enormous respect for their beauty and power. During his 37-year naval career, the retired admiral spent 11 years circumnavigating the globe. He shares his first-hand knowledge in his new book—Sea Power: The History and Geopolitics of the World’s Oceans.

As a scholar and the only admiral to serve as the Supreme Allied Commander at NATO, Stavridis is also a respected authority on the geopolitical advantages the world’s most important bodies of water bestow upon those who control them. From the first ocean battles between the Greeks and Persians, to current hotspots in the Eastern Mediterranean, South China Sea and Arctic Circle, Stavridis reveals why sea power determines world power.  

Now an Operating Executive Consultant for The Carlyle Group, Stavridis is an advocate for “smart power” in the quest to ensure peace and security. Hear why in this timely World Affairs Council program.
