India and Russia: Does the Tiger Still Like the Bear? (Rockland Public Library)

January 4 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Bill Hall

The Camden Conference and Rockland Public Library present Bill Hall on Thursday, January 4 at 6:30pm, for a talk on the relationship between India and Russia. The event is free and open to all. It will also be available on Zoom. Please email to receive the Zoom link.

India and Russia: Does the Tiger Still Like the Bear? It appears, at times, yes. But as India rises and Russia declines, the formerly close relationship between these two giants has clearly changed, going from admiration to transactional. A long mutual attraction has turned stale. What happened, and what does this evolution mean for the United States and the global order?

Bill Hall was an intelligence officer for the US Air Force, serving on active duty from 1969 until 1999, much of that time overseas. He grew up in Virginia and received a bachelor’s degree in politics from Princeton University and a master’s degree in foreign affairs from the University of Virginia. Bill lives year-round on Peaks Island with his wife, Nancy. He’s a past president of the World Affairs Council of Maine and serves on the boards of several Maine nonprofit organizations.

This presentation is hosted by the Rockland Public Library and offered as a free community event in anticipation of the 37th Annual Camden Conference –INDIA: Rising Ambitions, Challenges at Home, February 16-18, 2024, live at the Camden Opera House and live-streamed to the Strand Theatre in Rockland, Luther Bonney Hall at USM in Portland, and to homes and classrooms worldwide.
