Under the logo is the title of the presentation, "The End of the Cold War and its Aftermath" along with text of date, time and location of the presentation-- Thursday, Dec. 7, 2023, Carriage Club, 5301 State Line Road, Kansas City, Mo.Roughly thirty years ago, the Cold War came to an end. This multi-generational struggle, which did not always remain “cold,” came to define the security environment and, arguably, the social milieu for much of the world’s population. Yet, the old animosities and rivalries have continued to simmer beneath the surface boiling over in Europe and across the globe. In this presentation of the Arter-Rowland National Security Forum, U.S. Army Command and General Staff College professors Dr. Mark Wilcox and Dr. Sean Kalic will discuss the Simon’s Center’s Cold War Symposium and the culmination of that work in the book they co-edited, The End of the Cold War and its Aftermath.

This event is only open to members of the ARNSF. If you are not a member but are interested in joining, contact Bob Ulin at
