Tim Weiner: Neilly Series Lecture
Pulitzer Prize winner, Tim Weiner, examines the history of the CIA from its creation after World War II, through its battles in the cold war and the war on terror, to its near-collapse after 9/11. Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA earned Weiner a National Book Award and was deemed one of the Best Books of the Year by Time, The Washington Post, The New York Times, and The Economist.
Weiner is a reporter for The New York Times, where he has covered the CIA for the past twenty years, as well as wars, coups, and United States foreign policy. In 1988, while a reporter at The Philadelphia Inquirer, he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for national reporting, in recognition of articles exposing the secret spending of the Pentagon and the CIA.
The lecture will be introduced by Theodore M. Brown, Professor of History.
