On Thursday, April 13, the Rockefeller Center and the Student Veterans Association at Dartmouth co-hosted a Student Lunch with Professor William Wohlforth.
Professor Wohlforth, the Daniel Webster Professor of Government at Dartmouth, discussed and answered questions on his newest book, America Abroad: The United States’ Global Role in the 21st Century, co-authored with colleague, Stephen Brooks.
America Abroad provides a nuanced look at how America’s global role is shifting, and offers the first systematic analysis of how world politics would change if America were to pull back and pursue foreign policy retrenchment.
The Q&A between Professor Wohlforth and students in attendance centered around the following questions: How would America's interests fare if the United States decided to disengage from the world?; Will the U.S. long continue to be the only superpower in the international system?; and Should it sustain the world-shaping grand strategy it's followed since the dawn of the Cold War?
