This interview is part of the Institute's "Conversations with History" series, and uses Internet technology to share with the public Berkeley's distinction as a global forum for ideas.
Welcome to a Conversation with History. I'm Harry Kreisler of the Institute of International Studies. Our guest is Alan Cranston, who served as the United States Senator from California for four terms and is now president and founder of the Global Security Institute and director of its nuclear weapons elimination initiative. In his distinguished career, Mr. Cranston was also a journalist, president of the World Federalists, comptroller of California, and a leading figure in reforming the California Democratic party. In 1946 he wrote Killing the Peace, an account of the Senate's failure to join the League of Nations. The New York Times named his book one of the ten best of that year.
