International Perspectives Series - Elizabeth Cobbs Hoffman - The Next 40 Years of U.S. Foreign Policy
Dwight E. Stanford Professor of American Foreign Relations, San Diego State University

Friday, March 20, 2015 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Elizabeth Cobbs Hoffman, a San Diego professor who traces her career to best-selling western fiction writer Louis L'Amour, began a recent guest column on the Reuters website with "History has no on-off buttons. Change is never instantaneous."

Those non-instantaneous changes will command some of the spotlight when the author and professor headlines the Council's upcoming International Perspectives Series program titled "The Next 40 Years of U.S. Foreign Policy."

The San Diego State University Professor of Foreign Relations is the author of several non-fiction books on American history and foreign policy. She also won the 2009 San Diego Book Award for Best Historical Fiction with Broken Promises: A Novel of the Civil War. Her prize-winning literary efforts include serving as co-editor of the series of books titled Major Problems in American History.

You can read her Reuters comment on the U.S., China and environmental treaties and you can read and hear her entertaining National Public Radio story on her link to writer Louis L'Amour and the West that no longer exists. She told NPR, "L'Amour made me wish I had been born on the Great Plains in the 19th century, and turned me into a historian."
