US and Europe: Coming to Terms with Change26:51

This article is more than 16 years old.

On this week's show, we presented a discussion on the changing landscape of the relations between U.S. and Europe as NATO has just welcomed seven new members and a potential war against Iraq looms in.

James Hoge brings 30 years in journalism to his role as editor of "Foreign Affairs," and to his membership on the board of the Institute for Human Science at Boston University. In the 1960s, Hoge was a Washington correspondent covering Congress, national politics, and international assignments. In the '70s and '80s, he was editor and publisher of newspapers in Chicago and New York, winning a total of seven Pulitzer Prizes under his direction. For the inaugural lecture of the Institute for Human Science, Hoge chose the topic of the changing nature of the relationship between the U.S. and the nations of Europe.

Following Hoge's presentation, we heard a response from Boston University professor of history David Fromkin. He is the author of six books including "A Peace To End All Peace" and "The Way of the World: From the Dawn of Civilization to the Eve of the Twenty-First Century." Afterwards, James Hoge answered questions from the audience, touching on many topics in his response.

This program aired on November 24, 2002.
