Austrian-born diplomat and historian Dr. John G. Stoessinger, professor of political science at Hunter College, spoke about “Power and Morality in American Foreign Policy” in the Green and Grey Room.  Earlier in the day, Stoessinger, the former director of the political affairs division of the United Nations, led a discussion on “American Foreign Policy in the 1980 Elections.”

Stoessinger’s The Might of Nations: World Politics in Our Time (1962) won the prestigious Bancroft Prize in history in 1963.
