To Celebrate its 105th Anniversary on February 10, Carnegie Council Posts a Special Collection from its Archives

For its Centennial in 2014 Carnegie Council started work on the “100 for 100” project, an online selection of 100 of some of the best materials from its extensive archives, going back to 1914, now available just in time for the Council’s 105th anniversary.

"This is an adventure such as has never been tried before," announced Andrew Carnegie on February 10, 1914. He was addressing 29 of America's greatest religious leaders from 12 religious sects, an interfaith initiative that was a first for its time.

Carnegie had called them together to found his last philanthropic venture, the Church Peace Union, known today as Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs. Through the CPU, Carnegie hoped to mobilize the world's churches, religious organizations, and other spiritual and moral resources to join in promoting moral leadership and finding alternatives to armed conflict.

Over a century later, Carnegie Council continues to foster a global conversation on major ethical challenges in international politics. Broadcasting across multiple media channels, Carnegie Council offers lectures, interviews, articles, and programs—all available worldwide to anyone, anywhere.

The New Rules of War: Victory in the Age of Durable Disorder, with Sean McFate

"Nobody fights conventionally except for us anymore, yet we're sinking a big bulk, perhaps the majority of our defense dollars, into preparing for another conventional war, which is the very definition of insanity," declares national security strategist and former paratrooper Sean McFate. The U.S. needs to recognize that we're living in an age of "durable disorder"--a time of persistent, smoldering conflicts--and the old rules no longer apply.

The Crack-Up: 1919 & the Birth of Modern Korea, with Kyung Moon Hwang
