His new book, “America in Retreat: The New Isolationism and the Coming Global Disorder” is geared to elevate foreign policy in the national conversation, Stephens makes a powerful case for American intervention abroad.
Enjoy this brief passage from the introduction to the book:
“A world in which the leading liberal-democratic nation does not assume its role as world policeman will become a world in which dictatorships contend, or unite, to fill the breach. Americans seeking a return to an isolationist garden of Eden—alone and undisturbed in the world, knowing neither good nor evil—will soon find themselves living within shooting range of global pandemonium.”
