Ideas of war, strategies for warfare and its practice, and organizing principles of war all have rich and varied origins which have shaped the minds of those who conceive the next war. From the French defeat at Sedan in 1870 to the contemporary insurgencies in Iraq and Afghanistan, most claims from military futurists have been wrong, but remain influential nonetheless.

How can we predict new dangers by looking back at prior conflicts? What cunning plans might a future aggressor have in mind?

Sir Lawrence Freedman is emeritus professor of war studies at King's College London. In June 2009, he was appointed to serve as a member of the official inquiry into Britain and the 2003 Iraq War. Freedman has written extensively on nuclear strategy and the Cold War, as well as commenting regularly on contemporary security issues.

This construct requires honesty and reminds us that domestic policy and foreign policy ought to be linked.

Malaysian & Indonesian Elections, with Meredith Weiss & Jeremy Menchik

This fascinating conversation begins with a discussion of the critical importance of Southeast Asia, including the rise of China and its ambitions in the region. Then Professor Weiss focuses on Malaysia and the return of the formidable 93-year old Mahathir as prime minister. Next, Professor Menchik discusses the complex situation in Indonesia--a country with 17,000 islands and 300-plus ethnic groups--and the upcoming elections there.

Identity: The Demand for Dignity and the Politics of Resentment, with Francis Fukuyama

The rise of global populism is the greatest threat to global democracy, and it's mainly driven not by economics, but by people's demand for public recognition of their identities, says political scientist Francis Fukuyama. "We want other people to affirm our worth, and that has to be a political act." How is this playing out in the U.S., Europe, and Asia? What practical steps can we take to counteract it?
