Charles W. (“Chas”) Freeman, Jr., is an American diplomat, author, and writer. He served in the United States Foreign Service, the State and Defense Departments in many different capacities over the course of thirty years, with the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs calling his career “remarkably varied.” He most notably worked as the main interpreter for Richard Nixon in his 1972 China visit and as the United States Ambassador to Saudi Arabia from 1989 to 1992, where he dealt with issues related to the Persian Gulf War. He is a past president of the Middle East Policy Council, co-chair of the U.S. China Policy Foundation and a Lifetime Director of the Atlantic Council. Ambassador Freeman’s talk, which will be based on his recent book by the same title, is one in a series of distinguished speaker lectures sponsored by the Confucius Institute at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.

Books by Ambassador Freeman will be available for purchase and signing at the lecture from the University of Hawaii Bookstore.

Cosponsored by East-West Center and the Confucius Institute at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.
