At the end of the Cold War, America stood alone in the world as the supreme economic and military force. We were finally a unipolar giant with decent relations with present adversaries, like Russia and China. What went wrong? Stephen Walt, a professor of international affairs, at Harvard University and author of ‘The Hell of Good Intentions’, traces our problems to a misguided, bi-partisan strategy of ‘liberal hegemony'(he’ll explain). Many misadvenutes later, the foreign policy establishment in America still pushes the same concepts that have failed us in the past. And, while President Trump, espouses other ideas, Professor Walt doesn’t see his policies ushering in a new era for American foreign policy. The author suggests we pursue offshore balancing to align America foreign policy with our values and capabilities. This is important.
