Ted Eagles Introduction
I come to this trip with long-standing interest -- though little travel -- in the Middle East and with lifelong interest in international and security affairs. I taught European, and occasionally other, history at St. Albans School for 23 years before I retired in 2000. It turned out, I'm glad to say, I didn't really retire, as I carry on with a few projects and, most especially, teach the economic electives at the school. Once upon a time I graduated from Amherst College (1958) and took an M.A. at Princeton. My general sense of things is that Americans need desperately and respectfully to learn of the worlds beyond our borders, and I admire the strong efforts of CCAS and Global LAB to encourage that.
