What does it mean to be American in the world we live in today? The United States’ place on the global stage is no longer as assured as it was in previous generations. Anti-democratic and authoritarian forces are deepening divisions at home, while U.S. foreign policy is undergoing momentous shifts. And the COVID-19 pandemic – and America’s lackluster response to it – continues to devastate poor and wealthy nations alike. How does America move forward from here?
Ben Rhodes, who helped shape the presidency and legacy of President Barack Obama as a deputy national security advisor, tackles these issues and more in his new book, After the Fall: Being American in the World We’ve Made, which he will discuss in this keynote conversation with The Wall Street Journal’s Vivian Salama as part of Perry World House’s Global Order Colloquium, “How to See the Future: Forecasting and Global Policy.”
