Max Boot

Foreign-Policy Analyst and Military Historian Max Boot to Speak at Lecture Created to Honor Parents The topic of his lecture will be Israel’s Search for Security: From 1948 to Today. The lecture is free and open to the public. Seats are available on a first come, first served basis. This lecture is being underwritten by the Halperin families who created the lecture series to honor and remember their parents Dr. Bernard Halperin and Jeanette Gordon Halperin. A frequent guest on MSNBC, Max Boot is an independent thinker who writes prolifically about history, defense strategy, and foreign affairs. Mr. Boot is far more than an accomplished historian. He is engaged in current foreign policy challenges and debates. He is frequently called upon to advise national leaders with respect to defense and foreign policy matters. Most recently, he served as a foreign policy adviser to Senator Rubio’s 2016 campaign. Previously, Mr. Boot advised Senator John McCain and Mitt Romney. The New York Times has called him, "A master historian," and The Wall Street Journal has referred to him as, "A penetrating writer and thinker."
