In this webcast, Melvyn P. Leffler presents a lecture titled 'Retreat from Armageddon? Khrushchev, Kennedy, Johnson and the Elusive Quest for Peace.' According to Leffler, there were many attempts by policymakers in both Washington and Moscow to reduce the confrontational nature of the Cold War. Leffler analyzes the efforts of Nikita Khrushchev, John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson and attempt to explain why they did not succeed. This analysis of the Cold War is the subject of a forthcoming book.
