Today, the United States finds itself as the world’s paramount power. At its overwhelming economic, military, and political zenith – a position likely to be maintained in the foreseeable future – it is prudent to reassess what the appropriate role is for America on the world stage. Robert J. Art conducts such an assessment in his new book. Art considers a number of crucial questions, including what are America’s modern‐day national interests? What external threats to those interests exist, and how should they be properly addressed? Please join us for a timely discussion of American foreign policy and the proper “grand strategy” for the United States in the 21st century.
