H.R. McMaster in Conversation with Nikolas K. Gvosdev
In the previous issue of Orbis, editor Nikolas Gvosdev referenced a report issued by the Munich Security Conference that the world stands “at a zeitenwende, a turning of the age—where we might be on the verge of major discontinuities in world affairs which will make the recent past an unpredictable guide to developments that we may witness in the near future.” In such an environment, sound, clear strategic thinking is an absolute necessity for successful policy. Dr. Gvosdev asks General H.R. McMaster, who served as the 26th National Security Advisor, for his advice and counsel on how to think about the challenges the United States will face.
