Anne-Marie Slaughter, president and CEO of New America, has been planning her new book, The Chessboard and the Web, since 2009. She shared its contents for the first time at the MacMillan Center during the second of this year’s Henry L. Stimson Lectures on World Affairs in a three-part series titled “The Strategy of Connection.”
The Stimson Lectures are sponsored by the MacMillan Center and Yale University Press, which will be publishing Slaughter’s book in 2017.
Before taking the helm of New America, Slaughter served as the director of policy planning for the United States Department of State from 2009 to 2011, the first woman to hold that position. Prior to her government service, Slaughter was the dean of Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs from 2002 to 2009.
