If you happen to be in Westwood this Tuesday at 7 p.m., the Hammer Museum is hosting what promises to be a rather interesting forum.
John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt--two of the foremost realist foreign policy scholars in academia--will be in town to discuss their controversial book The Israel Lobby. The book expands on the arguments they made in an article of the same name that appeared in the London Review of Books in 2006.
Some have praised their work, others have called them anti-semites. You should go judge for yourself.
Check out this interview with Mearsheimer and Walt on Foreign Policy's website for an introduction to the debate.
