Oct. 17, 2001 (Lexington, Ky.) -- The public is invited to hear John J. Mearsheimer, a University of Chicago political scientist and author of "The Tragedy of Great Power Politics," lecture on his new book at 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, in the auditorium of the William T. Young Library on the campus of the University of Kentucky.

Mearsheimer will present his argument about why international politics remains fraught with peril despite the end of the Cold War.

"Given the events of Sept. 11, Mearsheimer's view of international politics seems even more compelling," said Michael Desch, associate director of the Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce, which is sponsoring Mearsheimer's appearance.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
