The Battle After Bush

Debating the Future of American Foreign Policy

With the possibility of Congress changing hands this January and the start of the race for the next White House, what kind of foreign policy will guide the country post-Bush? Recently, a debate about what U.S. foreign policy should look like has begun in earnest among realists, idealists, multilateralists, and nationalists.

This event, sponsored jointly by the New America Foundation and Democracy: A Journal of Ideas, brought together thinkers from across the political spectrum to debate the future of American foreign policy. Video is available at right, while an MP3 audio recording can be downloaded below.
