SIS Professor Guy Ziv will discuss his recently published book on how leaders' personalities impact their states' foreign policies. Ziv's work focuses on Israeli elder statesman Shimon Peres' dramatic shift from hawkish strategist to dovish peacemaker. He will apply his research findings to other leaders, including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and discuss the relevance of his work to the upcoming Israeli elections and their implications for Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking. 

Reception and book signing following discussion. 

Co-sponsored by SIS, United States Foreign Policy program, and the Center for Israel Studies.
