Things have changed dramatically over the past year. Or have they? We’re living in a (nearly) post-pandemic, post-Trump, post-economic collapse world amidst the continuing rise of China, while reckoning with racism, populism, and impending environmental ruin. The purpose of U.S. foreign policy has, at least theoretically, been to keep Americans safe. Yet as we confront a radically changed world, it has become indisputably clear that the terms of that policy have failed.
The timely launch of QI President Andrew Bacevich’s twelfth book — AFTER THE APOCALYPSE: America’s Role in a World Transformed — offers the opportunity to celebrate Andrew’s achievement and to interrogate this moment in history with three of the sharpest thinkers in the business.
We hope you’ll join The Nation’s Katrina vanden Heuvel and the American Conservative’s
Helen Andrews in conversation with Andrew about his call for nothing less than a profound overhaul of our understanding of national security.
