The American Review of Books, Blogs, and Bull – Issue 3
The American Review hopes to enrich our understanding of American political life by linking politics to larger trends in American culture society. This month’s two essays serve that mission by examining the often-chaotic intersection between politics and moral principle. FPRI Associate Scholar Darryl Hart offers an analysis of the attraction between American Evangelical Christians and Donald Trump. The (dis-) connection between policy and morality also attracts the analytical gaze of FPRI Fox Fellow Adam Garfinkle, who has penned a review of a recent work on “the benefits and pitfalls of America’s alliances with authoritarian regimes” to reflect on how Americans think about the compromises inherent in making foreign policy.
