John Lewis Gaddis: America & the Cold War
 
48:56

Yale University historian John Lewis Gaddis's portrait George Kennan: An American Life won the Pulitzer Prize in Biography this year and was more than 30 years in the making. Hailed as the "dean of Cold War historians" by the New York Times, Gaddis shares his unparalleled perspective on Kennan's titanic influence on American foreign policy. John Lewis Gaddis is the Robert A. Lovett professor of history at Yale University.

John Ikenberry, the Albert G. Milbank Professor of Politics and International Affairs, introduced Gaddis to the assembled crowd. George F. Kennan '25 has been noted as the one of the key architects of the "Marshall Plan," which was designed to rebuild Europe following World War II, as well as the author of the policy of "containment" espoused by U.S. The talk was co-sponsored by the Center for International Security Studies. http://wws.princeton.edu
Did the Soviet Union Want World Revolution? Rethinking Cold War History (1997)
 
01:02:51
John Lewis Gaddis (born 1941 in Cotulla, Texas) is an American historian of the Cold War and grand strategy, hailed as the "Dean of Cold War Historians" by The New York Times. He is the Robert A. Lovett Professor of Military and Naval History at Yale University. He is also the official biographer of the seminal 20th-century American statesman George F. Kennan. His biography of Kennan won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography in 2012. Gaddis attended the University of Texas at Austin, receiving his BA in 1963, MA in 1965, and PhD in 1968,[6][7] the latter under the direction of Robert Divine. Gaddis then taught briefly at Indiana University Southeast, before joining Ohio University in 1969.[6] At Ohio, he founded and directed the Contemporary History Institute,[8] and was named a distinguished professor in 1983.[6] In the 1975–1977 academic years, Gaddis was a Visiting Professor of Strategy at the Naval War College. In the 1992–1993 academic year, he was the Harmsworth Visiting Professor of American History at Oxford.[9] He has also held visiting positions at the Naval War College, Princeton University, and the University of Helsinki. He served as president of the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations in 1992.[10] In 1997, he moved to Yale University to become the Lovett Professor of Military and Naval History. In the 2000–2001 academic year, Gaddis was the George Eastman Professor at Oxford, the second scholar (after Robin Winks) to have the honor of being both Eastman and Harmsworth professor.[11] In 2005, he received the National Humanities Medal.[12] He sits on the advisory committee of the Wilson Center's Cold War International History Project,[13] which he helped establish in 1991.[12] Gaddis is also known for his close relationship with the late George Kennan and his wife, whom Gaddis described as "my companions".[14] He was also fairly close to President George W. Bush, making suggestions to his speech writers,[15] and has been described as an "overt admirer" of the 43rd President.[16] After leaving office, Bush took up painting as a hobby at Gaddis's recommendation. Gaddis is probably the best known historian writing in English about the Cold War.[18] His most famous work is perhaps the highly influential Strategies of Containment (1982; rev. 2005),[19] which analyzes in detail the theory and practice of containment that was employed against the Soviet Union by Cold War American presidents, and his 1983 distillation of post-revisionist scholarship similarly became a major channel for guiding subsequent Cold War research.[20] We Now Know (1997), an analysis of the Cold War through to the Cuban Missile Crisis that incorporated new archival evidence from the Soviet bloc, was likewise predicted as "likely to set the parameters for a whole new generation of scholarship",[21] while also praised as "the first coherent and sustained attempt to write the Cold War's history since it ended."[22] The Cold War (2005), praised by John Ikenberry as a "beautifully written panoramic view of the Cold War, full of illuminations and shrewd judgments,"[23] was described as an examination of the history and effects of the Cold War in a more removed context than had been previously possible,[24] and won Gaddis the 2006 Harry S. Truman Book Prize.[25] His 2011 biography of George Kennan garnered multiple prizes, including a Pulitzer.[5] Gaddis is known for arguing that Soviet leader Joseph Stalin's personality and role in history was one of the most important causes of the Cold War. Within the field of U.S. diplomatic history, he is most associated with the concept of post-revisionism, the idea of moving past the revisionist and orthodox interpretations of the origins of the Cold War to embrace what were (in the 1970s) interpretations based upon the then-growing availability of government documents from the United States, Great Britain and other western government archives. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Lewis_Gaddis

The Cold War: Kennan and Containment
 
01:12:30
On Monday, November 28, 2016, Mark Albertson began his Cold War lecture series. Our series begins with discussion of the doctrine of the renowned American foreign policy specialist, George Kennan. Based on the Mr. X article he published in Foreign Affairs in 1947, Containment was the strategy by which America would face the Soviet challenge whenever and wherever it posed a threat. Kennan considered the Soviet threat primarily political; and, saw such tools as America's economic advantage and "psychological warfare" as the proper strategy for reining in the Soviet Bear. Of course, for this strategy to be successful Americans would not be able to withdraw into that self-imposed incarceration known as Isolationism, as in 1865 and 1919. About the presenter Mark Albertson is the historical research editor at Army Aviation magazine and is a long-time member of the United States Naval Institute. In addition, Mark teaches history at Norwalk Community College. His courses include: World War I and Iraq: Creation of Colonialism; A History, Vietnam; A History, World War I; The Turning Points of World War II; The Great Patriotic War: The Titanic Clash Between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union; and American Empire: Grand Republic to Corporate State. In May 2005, Mark was presented with a General Assembly Citation by both houses of the state legislature in Hartford for his effort in commemorating the centennial of battleship Connecticut.

George F. Kennan | Historians who Changed History
 
10:28
George F. Kennan is an interesting case for "Historians who Changed History," because he changed history in a very different way. Not from within the profession, but from without. He was an instrumental figure in the beginning of the Cold War, creating the policy of containment, and basically became a historian in protest of how his policy was used. Kennan's work: Long Telegram (1946) https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Long_Telegram X Article (1947) https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Sources_of_Soviet_Conduct his bibliography: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_F._Kennan#Bibliography ------------------------------------------------------------ SUBSCRIBE FOR MORE VIDEOS: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=CynicalCypher88 contribute to my Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CynicalHistorian LET'S CONNECT: https://www.facebook.com/cynicalcypher88 https://twitter.com/Cynical_History ------------------------------------------------------------ Wiki: George Frost Kennan (February 16, 1904 – March 17, 2005) was an American diplomat and historian. He was known best as an advocate of a policy of containment of Soviet expansion during the Cold War on which he later reversed himself. He lectured widely and wrote scholarly histories of the relations between USSR and the United States. He was also one of the group of foreign policy elders known as "The Wise Men". During the late 1940s, his writings inspired the Truman Doctrine and the U.S. foreign policy of "containing" the Soviet Union. His "Long Telegram" from Moscow during 1946 and the subsequent 1947 article "The Sources of Soviet Conduct" argued that the Soviet regime was inherently expansionist and that its influence had to be "contained" in areas of vital strategic importance to the United States. These texts provided justification for the Truman administration's new anti-Soviet policy. Kennan played a major role in the development of definitive Cold War programs and institutions, notably the Marshall Plan. Soon after his concepts had become U.S. policy, Kennan began to criticize the foreign policies that he had seemingly helped begin. Subsequently, prior to the end of 1948, Kennan became confident that positive dialogue could commence with the Soviet government. His proposals were discounted by the Truman administration and Kennan's influence was marginalized, particularly after Dean Acheson was appointed Secretary of State in 1949. Soon thereafter, U.S. Cold War strategy assumed a more assertive and militaristic quality, causing Kennan to lament about what he believed was an abrogation of his previous assessments. In 1950, Kennan left the Department of State—except for two brief ambassadorial stints in Moscow and Yugoslavia—and became a realist critic of U.S. foreign policy. He continued to analyze international affairs as a faculty member of the Institute for Advanced Study from 1956 until his death at age 101. ------------------------------------------------------------ Hashtags: #History #GeorgeFKennan #ColdWar #Kennan #LongTelegram #XArticle #PolicyOfContainment

Containment: A Viable Strategy for Iran?
 
01:04:09
The Middle East Institute is proud to host Georgetown University professor Paul Pillar for a discussion about Iran and how best to address its nuclear ambitions. Pillar argues that the acceptable range of opinion on Iran has narrowed around the idea that all options, including a military strike, must be pursued to prevent the country from acquiring nuclear weapons. And yet, Pillar argues, if the combination of nuclear talks and sanctions do not yield the outcome the West and Israel seek, containment is preferable to war. A war with Iran, he believes, could be worse than the conjectured consequences of an Iranian bomb. Atlantic Council fellow Barbara Slavin will respond, posing the question of whether President Obama's position precludes a containment strategy or is part of an attempt to dissuade Iran from actually building a nuclear weapon.

John Lewis Gaddis (born 1941) is the Robert A. Lovett Professor of Military and Naval History at Yale University. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0674018362/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0674018362&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=2e66491141f22110474f445ebe3b0c87 He is best known for his work on the Cold War and grand strategy, and has been hailed as the "Dean of Cold War Historians" by The New York Times. Gaddis is also the official biographer of the seminal 20th-century American statesman George F. Kennan. George F. Kennan: An American Life (2011), his biography of Kennan, won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Biography or Autobiography.[4] Gaddis was born in Cotulla, Texas, in 1941.[5] He attended the University of Texas at Austin, receiving his BA in 1963, MA in 1965, and PhD in 1968,[6][7] the latter under the direction of Robert Divine.

Truman Book Prize.[25] Critics were rather less impressed, with Tony Judt summarising the book as "a history of America's cold war: as seen from America, as experienced in America, and told in a way most agreeable to many American readers."[26] His 2011 biography of George Kennan garnered multiple prizes, including a Pulitzer.[4] Gaddis is known for arguing that Soviet leader Joseph Stalin's personality and role in history constituted one of the most important causes of the Cold War. Within the field of U.S. diplomatic history, he is most associated with the concept of post-revisionism, the idea of moving past the revisionist and orthodox interpretations of the origins of the Cold War to embrace what were (in the 1970s) interpretations based upon the then-growing availability of government documents from the United States, Great Britain and other western government archives. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Lewis_Gaddis

In the aftermath of the destruction of World War II, the United States and Russia both claimed their place as world superpowers. This era saw boundaries drawn not only between new countries, but between idealisms and ways of life. The communist East, led by the USSR, engaged in the Cold War against the Capitalist and free West, led by the United States. In the midst of the Cold War, Europe saw itself move through the Green Revolution, and the United States watched Martin Luther King Jr. lead the Civil Rights movement. Man reached the moon, and a new wave of feminism earned women more rights. After nearly half a century of competition, arms races, and the threat of mutual destruction, the Soviet Union collapsed because it could not compete economically with the United States.

Celebrating the Legacy of George F. Kennan: Kennan and the Contemporary International Scene
 
01:27:04
This panel will broaden the focus beyond Russia, delving into Kennan’s sense of international order, his controversial elitism, his thinking about the world outside of Europe and his generally resistant attitude toward modern technology. By doing so it will critically examine Kennan’s salience for the present moment. Its goal will not be to come to a definite conclusion about Kennan but to sketch the outlines of contemporary international politics by comparing and contrasting the present with the past that Kennan represents and embodies. Speakers: · David Engerman, Ottilie Springer Professor of History, Brandeis University; as of Summer 2018, Professor of History, Yale University · Susan Glasser, Chief International Affairs Columnist, POLITICO · James Goldgeier, Professor of International Relations, American University School of International Service, Visiting Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations · Chris Miller, Assistant Professor of International History, Tufts University Fletcher School · Grace Kennan Warnecke, Chairman of the Board, National Committee on American Foreign Policy Moderated by: William Pomeranz, Deputy Director, Kennan Institute
