He was twice named Assistant Secretary of State, served as America's ambassador to Germany and the United Nations, brokered peace in Bosnia, and served as President Obama's representative in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Yet despite his towering accomplishments, Holbrooke never attained the heights that he sought. Did overreaching ambition and boundless self-confidence prevent this statesman from achieving greater results on the world stage? And how did such failings mirror the principles and practices of the country he served http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=356417 Asia Society and Museum Asia Society and Museum
