America in the World
A History of U.S. Diplomacy and Foreign Policy
- Robert B. Zoellick, Senior Fellow, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard University
- Karen Donfried, President, The German Marshall Fund of the United States
As part of its Future of American Power series, The German Marshall Fund of the United States is pleased to invite you to a conversation with Robert B. Zoellick to discuss his book America in the World: A History of U.S. Diplomacy and Foreign Policy. The book identifies five traditions that have emerged from America's encounters with the world: the importance of North America; the special roles trading, transnational, and technological relations play in defining ties with others; changing attitudes towards alliances; the need for public support; and the belief that American policy should serve a larger purpose. Zoellick’s review of post-Cold War presidencies serve as guideposts for the future. GMF President Karen Donfried will moderate this conversation.
