public intellectual, journalist, and really, one might also say that an academic, given how academically informed his scholarship is and also how well read he is within academia and respected and of course, I am speaking of Robert Kaplan.
And we have a special event because in some ways it is a double feature because Robert Kaplan is here with us along with Professor Saugata Bose who I would also like to thank very much for his contributions to the discussions that's going to happen. I want to just very briefly introduce both Robert Kaplan and then Sugata Bose and give a brief kind of blue print of how the discussion will work because we are hoping to have a conversation that will also involve the audience and then turn I'll it over to our guests.
Robert Kaplan, author of Monsoon: The Indian Ocean and the Future of American Power (Random House 2010), in discussion with Sugata Bose (Gardiner Professor of Oceanic History and Affairs, Harvard University).
