WorldBoston is pleased to welcome back Admiral James Stavridis, who delivered a remarkable keynote address at our 8th Annual Consuls Reception in October 2017. Join us as Admiral Stavridis discusses his latest book, Sea Power, in which he takes us on a tour of the world’s oceans from the admiral’s chair. Showing us how the geography of the oceans has shaped the destiny of nations, Stavridis examines how naval power has in a real sense made the world we live in today, and will shape the world we live in tomorrow. Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to meet one of the most sought-after commentators in foreign affairs and international geopolitics!
