3 Our Mission To be one of the premier speaker s podiums in Europe on American culture. To bring American culture to a Dutch and international audience by organizing public lectures, readings and discussions. To maintain our independent, nonprofit status, with freedom to choose speakers and topics. To provide our audience the opportunity to listen, learn and engage in discussions on the broad subject of the United States, its culture, and its impact on the world, without necessarily advocating particular viewpoint ourselves. 3

4 A Note from the Director Being an American living in Europe, looking back at America, and attempting all the while to present America to European audiences, is a challenging, and generally rewarding way to make a living. If that was true a few years ago, it was especially so during the eventful year of You had the waning of the Bush era. You had the building frenzy of a presidential campaign. As the year wore on you had the economic meltdown first in the U.S., then globally. And by the end of the year you had a new power center in the U.S., and new pronouncements and new hopes about the role the U.S. would play henceforth. Happily, the John Adams Institute does not have to try to embrace all of that change in its program. We are an independent American culture center, located in a corner of the storied West India House on the Herenmarkt in Amsterdam. Our job is to bring American voices to the Netherlands. How we define it beyond that depends on circumstances: our funding, our inclinations, what we think is important or relevant or special or amusing. And of course it depends on events. In the case of 2008, we tried to keep the big events in focus. We held a series of panel discussions, cosponsored by the University of Amsterdam, on the evolving state of the U.S. presidential race. We hosted former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, in an event broadcast on NOVA in which she gave her perspective on what the next president should do internationally to restore American standing and leadership in the world. Michael Oreskes, editor of the International Herald Tribune, handicapped the campaign as it stood at midyear. And as we approached election day, Shelby Steele gave our audience his views on Barack Obama, with a particular focus on race. As to the economic collapse, we actually had that covered long before its effects registered. Our first program of 2008 featured former American Labor Secretary Robert Reich, in an event with Alexander Rinnooy Kan and Dutch Minister of Economic Affairs Maria van der Hoeven. The topic was Supercapitalism, and Reich s contention that there were dangers in the spread of American-style capitalism. Some of those dangers became apparent as the year wore on. Meanwhile, the war in Iraq and lingering effects of 9/11 occupied many of us in 2008, and as well merited space in our lecture series. Martin Amis, one of the world s great novelists, came to Amsterdam to talk about the subject of his essay collection, The Second Plane, and the aftereffects of 9/11. New York Times war correspondent Dexter Filkins gave us an annotated slide show of his experiences in Iraq. New Yorker writer Steve Coll gave us the backstory of the Bin Laden family. 4

5 But we want not only to be a forum for politics and economic matters. We also want to be a window onto culture, art, history, lifestyle onto what Americans are feeling and watching and listening to. Thus we presented novelists Amy Bloom, Paul Auster and Junot Diaz, cartoonist Ben Katchor, musicians Steve Earle and Chip Taylor, and historian Lisa Jardine. And in a category by himself David Sedaris held forth on talking animals and how he packs his suitcase. No sooner was the year finished than we were launched into a truly new era. The turn from 2008 to 2009 was a rare fulcrum, a point on which history pivots. The era of Obama, the era of nationalization and economic restructuring, the Hudson Year, The Island these are some of the directions in which the John Adams Institute has moved since then. But those are topics for another time. For now, let me conclude with an observation. Times of economic distress provide easy and legitimate reasons not to support nonprofit activities. Who has extra money at such times? On the other hand, I would like to put forth the idea that it is precisely at such moments, when so much transformation is afoot, that trans-national dialogue is most vital. The John Adams Institute is a small organization, but we like to think that our work has real merit, especially at such a time of questioning and confusion and reevaluation. Our newest sponsors and supporters among whom are the City of Amsterdam and the Dutch Foreign Affairs Ministry attest to that. So do our many corporate friends, Aegon, the U.S. Embassy, the Dutch publishers and booksellers with whom we work closely, the 183 new members who joined us over the year, and the 3281 people who came to our events in That is an increase of 67 percent over the previous year. If you will permit me a touch of hyperbole The people have spoken! Russell Shorto 5

6 6 Events

7 Robert B. Reich 14 January 2008 Location: Kloosterkerk, The Hague President Bill Clinton s former Secretary of Labor argues in his important new book that in the last thirty years capitalism has flourished at the expense of democracy. Robert Reich, one of America s most renowned economists, says people now see themselves as buyers and sellers first and citizens only later, if at all. The rise of supercapitalism has meant fantastically increased choices for consumer goods but also decimated public services, an end to job security and looming environmental catastrophe. The U.S. leads in this dark trend, Reich argues, but Europe is right behind, and the only solution is to renew civic participation: to turn consumers back into citizens.

8 Steve Earle 31 January 2008 Location: Paradiso, Amsterdam Steve Earle in conversation with Chris Kijne about politics, music and the culture clash of moving from Nashville to New York City. Special John Adams Institute event, held in the afternoon of Earle's performance at Paradiso. Moderator Chris Kijne, VPRO broadcaster In cooperation with Paradiso Steve Earle -"the hardcore troubadour"-is a legend in rock and country music circles, and nearly as renowned for his politics as for his music. His 2002 album, Jerusalem, was a reaction to President George W. Bush's "war on terrorism." The song "John Walker's Blues," about the captured American Taliban John Walker Lindh, provoked headlines around the world and much outrage; many accused Earle of sympathizing with terrorists.

9 Christopher Hitchens 13 February 2008 Location: Aula, Universiteit van Amsterdam He dismissed Hillary Clinton as "an aging and resentful female" and, regarding Barack Obama, he asked, "why is a man with a white mother considered to be 'black, anyway?" Christopher Hitchens is one of America's most provocative public intellectuals. In his new book, God Is Not Great -a runaway bestseller in the U.S. -Hitchens goes after organized religion with both barrels blazing. Why is the West in such a heightened state of insecurity? Hitchens gives a three-word answer: "Religion poisons everything." And if all religions are dangerous, Islam, he says, is the biggest threat because "it's unalterable." Moderator Panelist Arjo Klamer, Chair of Economics of Art and Culture at Erasmus University Fouad Laroui, Teacher of Arabic Language and Culture at the Universiteit van Amsterdam and author of Islamism In cooperation with J.M. Meulenhoff Publishers Photos Chris van Houts 9

10 Madeleine Albright 19 February 2008 Location: Aula, Universiteit van Amsterdam In this one-of-a-kind event, former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright talked about her new book, Memo to the President-Elect, offered her analysis of what the next president must do to restore America's international standing, and assessed the presidential candidates.

11 Amy Bloom 5 March 2008 Location: Felix Meritis, Amsterdam Amy Bloom trained as a psychotherapist, but her prose is anything but analytical. Her sensitive exploration of human interactions, expressed in a style that is luminous yet engagingly direct, has won her many fans and awards. Her new novel, Away, tells the picaresque story of a Russian Jew in the 1920s whose family is killed in a pogrom and who then finds her way to New York and its Yiddish theater world. News that her daughter may be alive -in Siberia -then sparks an improbable transcontinental trek. Critics have hailed it as "far and away one of the best books of the year." The New York Times called it "a classic page-turner, one that delivers a relentlessly good read." Moderator Kristien Hemmerechts, Journalist & Author In cooperation with Nieuw Amsterdam Publishers Photos Gerrit Serné 11

12 Steve Coll 21 April 2008 Location: Posthoornkerk, Amsterdam One of America' s most renowned international affairs correspondents came to the John Adams Institute podium to discuss his revelatory new book on the Bin Laden family. Steve Coll won the Pulitzer Prize in 2004 for Ghost Wars, which showed how 9/11 was an outgrowth of the CIA' s long involvement in Afghanistan. His new book, The Bin Ladens, one of the most highly anticipated releases of the spring, penetrates the veil of secrecy that has kept the famous and infamous Saudi family largely hidden from public view. The result is a sprawling saga of money, oil, religion, and politics -and at the center of it all, of course, the figure of Osama bin Laden. Steve Coll is a writer for The New Yorker and president of the New America Foundation, a Washington, D.C. think tank.

13 The Word as a Way Out 26 April 2008 Location: OBA Public Library Amsterdam Junot Diaz Julie Phillips Ben Katchor Moderator: Michael Martin Part of: International Literature Festival Amsterdam April

14 Ben Katchor 27 April 2008 Location: Jewish Historical Museum, Amsterdam Ben Katchor, the first comic strip artist ever to win a McArthur Foundation "genius grant. has been called "the most poetic, deeply layered artist ever to draw a comic strip." Katchor started out as a contributor to Art Spiegelman's legendary cutting edge graphics magazine Raw, and his strips Julius Knipl Real Estate Photographer and The Jew in New York have been syndicated in the United States since Moderator Gert Jan Pos, Journalist In cooperation with Jewish Historical Museum Photos Chris van Houts 14

15 Michael Oreskes Executive Editor, International Herald Tribune 13 May 2008 Location: Aula, Universiteit van Amsterdam Moderator Twan Huys, Journalist & Author In cooperation with International Herald Tribune The intense interest in this year's American presidential election has a flipside: the reason all campaigns have had the mantra of "change" is that no one is pleased with the country s recent leadership. The U.S. prides itself on its democracy, and above all on its Constitution. How has the American government strayed so far from its principles? What will be the central battleground of the general election campaign, and can the next president restore faith -at home and abroad -in the American system? In a very special John Adams Institute event, Michael Oreskes, the executive editor of the International Herald Tribune, gave his unique perspective on these questions in a wide-ranging discussion with Twan Huys, the host of NOVA.

16 Paul Auster 10 June 2008 Location: De Duif, Amsterdam Paul Auster was born in New Jersey, but is most associated with Brooklyn (where he has long lived) and Paris (where he worked as a translator of French literature). He is a writer like no other, who has been known to mix magical realism with detective fiction. From the "New York Trilogy"of the 1980s to Mr. Vertigo, in which a boy is determined to learn to levitate, to Timbuktu, whose main character is a dog, to the screenplay for the indie film Smoke, Auster's work plays on coincidence and absurdity. In his new novel, Man in the Dark, Auster turns a political theme -the war in Iraq -into an exploration of the possibly even more nightmarish realm of one man's psyche. Introduction Guusje ter Horst, Minister of Home Affairs & Kingdom Relations In cooperation with Arbeiderspers Publishers Photos Chris van Houts 16

17 Lisa Jardine 19 June 2008 Location: Bethaniënklooster, Amsterdam Moderator Russell Shorto In cooperation with Arbeiderspers Publishers Photos Gerrit Serné In the great book of history, the British Empire typically merits a fat chapter, while the Dutch Enlightenment gets a passing mention. The problem with this, argues Lisa Jardine in her groundbreaking work Going Dutch: How England Plundered Holland's Glory, is that Britain's rise was built on -not to say swiped from-the intellectual achievements of its neighbor and competitor. From painting techniques to new business practices to its passion for cleanliness and proclivity for tolerance, the Dutch Republic infected England in the 17th century. Its way of doing things became part of the English way. In her rich new book, bristling with examples and exuding the colors and textures of the time, Jardine -professor of Renaissance Studies at Queen Mary, University of London- simply changes history

18 Martin Amis 9 September 2008 Location: De Duif, Amsterdam Britain's greatest living author comes to the John Adams Institute podium on the occasion of the Dutch publication of his new collection of essays about the post-9/11 world, The Second Plane. After spending his early career on the political left, Martin Amis lived for two years in Uruguay and returned to find that, as he later said, "I had moved quite a distance to the right while staying in the same place." The Second Plane ignited controversy in the U.K. for seeming to conflate hatred of Islamism with hatred of Islam. Amis is the author of some of the most celebrated novels of our time, including London Fields, Money, and The Information.

19 David Sedaris 23 September 2008 Location: De Rode Hoed, Amsterdam The humorist and author of Me Talk Pretty One Day and Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim brought his entourage to Amsterdam for the Dutch publication of his latest collection of wisdom, When You Are Engulfed in Flames. Sedaris instructed the John Adams audience on how to buy drugs in a North Carolina trailer and how to pretend you attended Princeton University before the birth of Jesus Christ.

20 Shelby Steele 5 October 2008 Location: De Rode Hoed, Amsterdam Barack Obama is the most compelling political figure to come out of the U.S. in at least a generation. At the core of his personality is his biracial background. Shelby Steele -a research fellow at Stanford University and a winner of the National Book Critics' Circle Award-is also the child of a white mother and a black father. He sees both Obama's promise and pitfalls as rooted in his search for identity. One month before the presidential election, Steele was in Amsterdam to share his thesis, which is provocatively spelled out in the English subtitle of his book: "Why We Are Excited About Obama and Why He Can't Win." Moderator Twan Huys, Journalist & Author Organized in cooperation with -De Rode Hoed -Elsevier Publishers Photo (screenshot from video) Roberto Bourgonjen 20

21 Dexter Filkins 20 November 2008 Location: West-Indisch Huis, Amsterdam In The Forever War, Dexter Filkins -one of America's top war correspondents -has produced a book of scintillating beauty, if one can apply such a term to the nightmare that has unfolded in Afghanistan and Iraq. How to sort through the lies, the bombs, the billions of dollars, the thousands of deaths? Filkins stays close to the ground. He tells stories. He bears witness. He knows which details hold meaning. "His writing," says novelist Robert Stone, "is one of the scant good things to come out of the war.

22 Chip Taylor 14 December 2008 Location: Paradiso, Amsterdam Singer-songwriter Chip Taylor took the John Adams Institute stage to talk about his special bond with The Netherlands, but also to play some of his famous songs. Taylor is the man behind such classics as Wild Thing (The Troggs), Try Just a Little Bit Harder (Janis Joplin) and Angel of the Morning (Juice Newton), and is considered one of the great American songwriters of his generation.

26 Support As a nonprofit organization, the John Adams Institute has been ahead of its time in the sense that, ever since its launch in 1987, it has depended heavily on the private sector. We are also fortunate to benefit from a small number of public sector grants and funding. This year we received a very generous donation from the Holland America Friendship Foundation. In addition to annual support from our Friends, Sponsors and members, we also seek partners with a particular interest in individual events. In 2008, we received specific event-related support and assistance from the following: Publishers and book importers J.M. Meulenhoff de Arbeiderspers Other supporters 26

27 Becoming a Sponsor or Friend of the John Adams Institute brings a company or individual with interests in the United States into an eclectic community, which includes politicians, entrepreneurs, writers, artists, journalists, professors and publishers. Indeed, our audiences and network of supporters include people of accomplishments that rival those of our speakers. Our Sponsors and Friends tell us they find value in their affiliation in various ways, whether by inviting clients to hear a Nobel Prize winner or former U.S. Secretary of State in an intimate setting or by mingling at our receptions. Many times a corporation will approach us asking to sponsor an individual event; this gives them a large bloc of seats and the chance to use a reception with the featured speaker as a special occasion for their members or customers. In 2008, we gained the following corporate sponsors: - Nyenrode University - Resources Global Professionals. For a complete List of Corporate Friends & Sponsors for 2008, see page 38. Sometimes supporters indicate from the beginning that their contribution will be limited to a certain time period. We wish to thank the following departing Friends for their generous support in past years: Nieuw-Amsterdam Publishers, NIBC Bank, Greif, Boom Publishers and Kadaster Apeldoorn. Individual support Member ( 25), Patron ( 65) President s Club ( 500) Personal Friend ( 1500 and up). We currently have 1228 members. Of this total, 16 are members of the President s Club (see below) and 13 are donating at the Ambassador level. In 2007 the board of the John Adams Institute has decided to cancel the Ambassador level for new members. President s Club members R.M. Amato, K.A. van den Broek-Kohlstrand, R. Donehoo, R.W.H. Groen, P.J. Gunn, C. &. D. Harple, L. Kaplanian, S.W. Khan, W. Knibbeler, D.S. Macy, W. van Roijen-Van Nispen, H.O.C.R. Ruding, F. Schaik, M. Schuit- Williams, W.F.C. Stevens-Mullens, F. Warmelink. 27

28 Publicity We get the word out with news cards, cards e - cards, cards posters, posters press releases, releases advertisements and via our website. Our website is an important source of information for the public, providing the latest updates on our program, membership subcription, ticket sale and past guests videos. Apart from our own promotional materials, we occasionally advertise lectures in local newspapers.
