Ep. 31: The Battle Over Offshore Balancing

Is the United States a country in inevitable decline, or are we a country in renewal? Should our foreign policy commitments include indefinite deployments of United States troops, or should we rely on our allies throughout the world to help maintain our interests? These are the kinds of questions the next administration will have to face, Peter Feaver says.

Peter Feaver is Professor of Political Science and Public Policy at Duke. He also serves as Director of the Duke Program in American Grand Strategy. He served in the White House during two administrations.

Feaver talks with Sanford’s Dean, Kelly Brownell.
