David Ignatius

World View Lecture

Cobb Great Hall

Bestselling author, Washington Post columnist, and co-moderator with Fareed Zakaria of the online journalism discussion group PostGlobal, David Ignatius has been making sense of the world for over 40 years. He’s covered nearly everything from the Pentagon to the CIA to Capitol Hill, global politics, the Middle East, and economics. He turned his CIA experiences into nine thrilling novels because, as Bob Woodward said, “Few understand espionage culture as well as Ignatius.” A lifetime achievement award-winner from the International Center for Journalists, his novel Body of Lies was also adapted into a film. His talk will focus on foreign policy and the war on terrorism.

The World View Lecture Series is made possible in part by the MSU Office of the President. This presentation is generously supported by the College of Natural Science; Department of Community Sustainability; Symposium on Science, Reason, & Modern Democracy (Political Science); and University Outreach and Engagement.
