Dialogue
Topic: Interview with Journalist Martin Walker
Broadcast time: Wednesday June 7, 8:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Dialogue is the television version of the Woodrow Wilson Center's radio show of the same title.

Host George Liston Seay converses with journalist and historian Martin Walker about his new book, America Reborn: A Twentieth-Century Narrative in Twenty-Six Lives. Walker tells the history of twentieth century America through the personal stories of twenty-six noteworthy individuals, ranging from Theodore Roosevelt to Katherine Hepburn.
A prize-winning British author, Walker often writes about how Europeans view America's global leadership. In this program, he offers many original and provocative insights on American cultural dominance -- which he terms "soft power." He speculates that the future of America depends on the degree to which it "embraces the next great wave of immigration." Senior Wilson Center scholar Seymour Martin Lipset, who has compared the U.S. with Canada and written extensively on U.S. "exceptionalism," comments on what Walker has to say about the tradition of individualism in America.

Wilson Review
Topic: U.S.-Russian Relations
Broadcast time: Wednesday June 14, 8:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Wilson Review is an international affairs discussion program hosted by Woodrow Wilson Center director Lee Hamilton.

"Don't abuse Russian weakness. It may backfire," warns Anatoliy Adamishin in a lively panel discussion of the Yeltsin legacy, Russia's democratic transition, and the challenges facing the Putin administration. Adamishin is the former Russian ambassador to Italy and the United Kingdom.

Lee Hamilton, director of The , leads Adamishin and three other experts in assessing the current status of U.S.- Russian relations. Also participating are Blair Ruble, director of the Center's Kennan Institute for Advanced Russian Studies; Paula Dobriansky, vice president of the Washington Program, Council on Foreign Relations; and Robert Kaiser, associate editor and senior correspondent for the Washington Post.
