Ship : LE BOUGAINVILLE

Featuring lectures and discussions with CNN host Fareed Zakaria, former director of the CIA General Michael Hayden, and best-selling author and classicist Daniel Mendelsohn, this voyage offers an extraordinary opportunity to talk with these leading thinkers and actors on the world stage about the current state of Western civilization and its prospects for the future.

The Mediterranean world is the source of much of what we know as modern civilization—the values of democracy and scientific inquiry, the expression of the human spirit in literature, art and music, and the teachings of the three great monotheistic religions.

What is the current status of this great crossroads of cultures—intersecting Europe, the Middle East and North Africa—as the region faces new political, economic, and social flashpoints? What lies ahead? And at this historic juncture, what should the United States do to ensure that the rich diversity of peoples and beliefs endures?

In lectures and in thoughtful conversation with one another and with you, our guest experts will bring their decades of experience to bear on these and other questions, as together we consider the future of Mediterranean/Western civilization in the 21st century.
