Reed’s political science department brought noteworthy speakers to campus this year as part of a special public policy lecture series, America and the World in the Post 9/11 Era. The first speaker was Tamim Ansary ’70 (see the article on page 18), who spoke in October about his recent trips to Afghanistan and Pakistan. Distinguished foreign policy expert Joseph S. Nye Jr., dean and Don K. Price Professor of Public Policy at the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, spoke in November on “The Paradox of American Power.” Nye served as U.S. assistant secretary of defense for international security affairs; as chair of the National Intelligence Council; as deputy to the U.S. Undersecretary of State for security assistance, science, and technology; and as chair of the National Security Council group on nonproliferation of nuclear weapons. The series continues through February with speakers Khalil Shikaki, public opinion pollster from the West Bank; Ted Gurr ’57, professor of political science at the University of Maryland and director of the Minorities at Risk project; and Peter Feaver, director of the Triangle Institute for Security Studies and associate professor of political science at Duke University, The lectures are sponsored by the Munk-Darling Lecture Fund in International Relations, the World Affairs Council of Oregon, the David Robinson Fund for Human Rights, and the Elizabeth C.
