Robert Vitalis will discuss his new book White World Order, Black Power Politics: The Birth of American International Relations (Cornell University Press, 2015) on Thursday April 21 (6:00 PM) at the Tamiment Library. A reception with food and wine will follow the lecture. This event is sponsored by the Frederic Ewen Center.
Robert Vitalis teaches political science at the University of Pennsylvania. The London Guardian named his America’s Kingdom: Mythmaking on the Saudi Oil Frontier, a book of the year in 2006. His new book, White World Order, Black Power Politics (Cornell University Press, 2015) moves away from the Middle East to explore the unwritten history of racism and imperialism in American disciplinary international relations and the recovery of its critical “Howard School” tradition.
