Langdon is a Fellow of the U.S. State Department’s Scholar/Diplomat Program and is a member of the World History Association, the Society for French Historical Studies, and the American Committee on the History of the Second World War.  He has written 6 books, including The Cold War: A Global History, and Connections: A World History.  He and his wife live in Manlius.  They have two married daughters and two grandchildren.

John is well known in the Syracuse area, especially by the senior community, for his standing room only presentations on current world affairs for the local chapter of OASIS, a unique educational program for mature adults. His down-to-earth witty conversational style gives him instant rapport with his audiences and helps them to better understand complex world issues.  You are sure to enjoy your “Evening with John Langdon.”
