The National History Center and the Council on Foreign Relations hosted a conversation with historian Jonathan Steinberg at the CFR’s New York headquarters on Thursday, October 20, 2011. Titled “Personality and Power: The Case of Otto von Bismarck,” the program was based upon Steinberg’s recent book, Bismarck: A Life. History Center Director Wm. Roger Louis moderated the discussion.
Steinberg is Walter H. Annenberg Professor of Modern European History at the University of Pennsylvania. The meeting is part of a series featuring prominent historians who examine the events, times, and individuals that shaped foreign policy as we know it today. A webcast of his session is available at NHC-CFR: Steinberg on Bismarck.
