Peter Dale Scott is one of the most perceptive and courageous political thinkers and poets of our time. A former Canadian diplomat and professor of English at Berkeley, his brilliant research has consistently revealed the deepest, most hidden truths about America’s efforts to shape the world in the last half century. His major works include The Road to 9/11: Wealth, Empire and the Future of America (2007) and Deep Politics and the Death of JFK (1993). Both books explore the concepts of parapolitics and deep politics, growing in part out of his researches into the Vietnam War, and later the JFK assassination. This symposium will bring together an outstanding group of writers and scholars to honor the brilliant work of Peter Dale Scott at the beginning of his 80s.
