Could the Vietnam War have taken a different course? Historian Max Boot argues the possibility in his latest book, The Road Not Taken: Edward Lansdale and the American Tragedy in Vietnam. In this groundbreaking biography of CIA operative Edward Lansdale, Boot uses extensive research and insight that reframes our understanding of the Vietnam War. Join WorldBoston for a discussion with Max Boot on the topic and its legacy today.

Max Boot is the Jeane J. Kirkpatrick senior fellow for national security studies at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. A military historian and foreign policy analyst, he has been called one of “the world’s leading authorities on armed conflict” by the International Institute for Strategic Studies. Mr. Boot is also a contributing editor to the Weekly Standard and the Los Angeles Times, a member of USA Today’s board of contributors, a columnist for Foreign Policy, and a regular contributor to the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Commentary, and other publications.
