Josef Joffe: The Imperial Temptation of America

Conversations With History - Josef Joffe

Josef Joffe, Editor and Publisher, Die Zeit.


Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Die Zeit Publisher/Editor Josef Joffe for a discussion of America's role in the 21st century. Starting with an analysis of the differences between a bi-polar and a uni-polar world, Joffe analyzes the roots of anti Americanism, seeks to define a global strategy for U.S. foreign policy, and offers a unique perspective on the different worlds the U.S. confronts,the Berlin/Berkeley axis—a post modern world of information technology and no possibility of war-- and the Beijing/Baghdad axis—a world of nationalism where war is still possible.
