Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts BookTalk: American Grand Strategy in the Age of Trump

BookTalk: American Grand Strategy in the Age of Trump

  • January 24, 2018

It can be argued that the rise of Donald Trump has created more uncertainty about America’s role in the world than at any time in recent decades. At the same time, the geopolitical challenges to the US have grown in number and in severity. What role should the United States play in the world? In this talk, as in his book, Brands will reflect on this core question for all Americans and offer “a guide for the perplexed.” His earlier book, Making the Unipolar Moment: U.S. Foreign Policy and the Rise of the Post-Cold War Order, was rated one of the top books of the year in 2017 by Foreign Affairs magazine. He has served in the Pentagon as a special assistant to the secretary of defense for strategic planning.
