The Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service will present a talk on the United States’ role in the world by Strobe Talbott, President of The Brookings Institution and former Deputy Secretary of State, on Thursday, February 15th, 2007, starting at 4:30 p.m. and concluding at 6:00 p.m. The discussion, which is free and open to the public, will take place at NYU Wagner’s home in the historic Puck Building, 295 Lafayette Street, Manhattan, 2nd floor.
Talbott’s timely presentation is entitled “After the Revolution: The Next Phase of American Foreign Policy.”
President George W. Bush, in his first term, broke with his predecessors, including his father, in his working concept of America’s role in the world. He launched what has been called “The Bush Revolution in U.S. Foreign Policy.” Its distinguishing features were unilateralism (going it alone) and exceptionalism (a belief that America had a special dispensation to set the rules for others but not necessarily to follow the rules that the U.S. itself helped establish for the international system over the past century). The high-water mark of the Bush Revolution was the invasion of Iraq. With the debacle now unfolding there and in the region, a restoration of traditional American internationalism is under way.
