Description

Summary

In a speech given in the late 1930s, British MP Sir Austen Chamberlain invoked an ancient Chinese curse that he had learned of from a British diplomat who had served in Asia, and which took the curious form of saying, "May you live in interesting times." "There is no doubt that the curse has fallen on us," Chamberlain observed. "We move from one crisis to another. We suffer one disturbance and shock after another." Well, we certainly live in “interesting times” now and we are delighted to welcome our speakers for this evening.
