of the Alabama World Affairs Council, feature leading speakers from both
military and civilian life -- not to mention fine food. Meetings are held
at the elegant Museum of Fine Arts, or at the Air University at Maxwell
AFB.) Much of the Montgomery international elite, including officers
from the Air University and many successful business executives with international
interests, take part in the proceedings. The council offices are
sponsored by Auburn University Montgomery.
Talks may cover international relations theory (e.g. Joseph Nye of Harvard, 1999) or practice. For a practical example, consider an illustrated case in 1999-2000 of a US General employing a multi-national SWAT team to snatch a war criminal from Serbia -- to put him on trial in the Hague.
Upon entering the building you will find a name badge on left desk and proceed to enjoy the reception from 5:30 pm until 6:15pm when the speech begins in the auditorium. The food and drink is superb, and you will be entertained by a civilized string quartet.
Huntingdon students: you will need
to car pool from in front of Blount dorm at 5pm prompt, dressed in smart,
professional clothing. Driving time in rush hour will be at least
15 minutes, so leave about 5:00pm. I will meet you in the Museum entrance
or in the reception crowd. It finishes promptly at 7:30pm. Drive carefully
-- and the first few to arrive will have free soft drinks on me.
