Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. In a special series titled “Policy Lessons from the Past," four Texas-based policy experts will discuss how our shared history impacts today's political environment, spanning topics like racial justice, immigration, global confrontations and the very nature of democracy.


The LBJ Washington Center presents Dr. Will Inboden, a national security scholar from the LBJ School of Public Affairs at The University of Texas at Austin. In this moderated discussion, Dr. Inboden masterfully describes Ronald Reagan's foreign policy and the role of the United States in ending the Cold War. This is the subject of his new book The Peacemaker: Ronald Reagan, the Cold War and the World on the Brink.
