The Diplomat: Lester Pearson and the Suez Crisis details the painstaking work of then diplomat and future 14th prime minister of Canada Lester Bowles Pearson during the Suez Crisis. As a result, Pearson saved the world from a bloody conflict, cemented Canada’s reputation as “a moderate, mediatory, middle power” and won himself the Nobel Peace Prize.
Author Antony Anderson sits down with Associate Professor in the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Ottawa Roland Paris to discuss his new book, including the crisis that defined a man’s life. This event will include lunch.
