The Imperial Temptation of America (Conversations with History)

1/14/2008; 58 minutes

Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Die Zeit Publisher/Editor Josef Joffe for a discussion of America's role in the 21st century. Starting with an analysis of the differences between a bi-polar and a uni-polar world, Joffe analyzes the roots of anti-Americanism, defines a global strategy for U.S. foreign policy, and offers a unique perspective on the different worlds the U.S. confronts, the Berlin/Berkeley axis—a post modern world of information technology and no possibility of war--and the Beijing/Baghdad axis—a world of nationalism where war is still possible.
