Dr. Stephen Cimbala
9/26/2007 —

The Faculty Forum Lecture Series at Penn State Brandywine continues with "From The Good Shepherd to 9-11: Forty Years of Intelligence," on Tuesday, October 16, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the lower level of Vairo Library on campus.

Stephen Cimbala, distinguished professor of political science and internationally recognized expert on military strategy and intelligence, will discuss the recently released movie The Good Shepherd, starring Robert DeNiro, which chronicles the formative years of the CIA following World War II and at the onset of the Cold War.

Cimbala, an author of many books and articles in the fields of national security policy, nuclear arms control, intelligence, and more, said the movie can teach us lessons on the role of intelligence in "the war on terror" moving forward. His latest book, published this year with co-author Peter Rainow, is Russia and Postmodern Deterrence.

Lectures in the Faculty Forum, which is part of Penn State Brandywine's 40th anniversary celebration this year, are free and open to the public. For more information on upcoming 40th anniversary events, click here.
