Stephen Kinzer will tell the story of how the United States became an overseas empire. His book, Overthrow: America’s Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq, shows how the annexation of Hawaii was the beginning of an era of foreign intervention.

Mr. Kinzer is a current Senior Fellow at the Watson Center for International and Public Affairs at Brown University, as well as the World Affairs columnist for the Boston Globe. He is a former Foreign Correspondent for the New York Times, and has written several books about U.S. foreign policy.
