Kagan, who will speak on Oct. 25, is an expert on the dynamics of power in the post-Cold War world. He works extensively on domestic politics and U.S. strategy and diplomacy, including foreign policy, military strategy and the defense budget. His latest book, “Of Paradise and Power: America and Europe in the New World Order,” was a New York Times and Washington Post bestseller. It analyzes the historical causes of the gulf between European and American perspectives on power and the forces that seem to be widening the rift inexorably.
On Oct. 26, Stuart Rothenberg, editor and publisher of The Rothenberg Political Report, will be the final general session speaker at the NPCA annual meeting.
