About David Milne

Interview Summary

In the course of a century, U.S. foreign policy has repeatedly switched from overseas interventions to domestic issues only to swing again. Nine policymakers, or influencers, have managed to change the direction of the country’s foreign policy with mixed results.

The cast of characters covered include theorist Albert Thayer Mahan, universalist Woodrow Wilson, isolationist Charles Beard, pragmatist George Kennan, realist Walter Lippmann, hawkish Paul Nitze, manipulative Henry Kissinger, militant Paul Wolfowitz to pragmatist Barrack Obama.
