Host Harry Kreisler welcomes Derek Chollet and James Goldgeier for a discussion of U.S. foreign policy from the Fall of the Berlin Wall until the attack on 9/11. They discuss the search for a grand strategy during the Clinton administration and outline the debates among liberals and among conservatives about the U.S. role as the sole superpower, especially the relative importance of economic power versus military power in shaping world order. Chollet and Goldgeier also focus on the new security challenges facing the United States-- global warming, terrorism, and the spread of infectious disease.
