Book Breaks with Michael Mandelbaum on The Four Ages of American Foreign Policy: Weak Power, Great Power, Superpower, Hyperpower
The Gilder Lehrman Institute’s weekly program Book Breaks features the most exciting history scholars in America discussing their books with guest host Nathan McAlister live, followed by a Q&A with home audiences.

Join us online on Sunday, November 27 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. ET (11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. PT) with Michael Mandelbaum as he discusses his book The Four Ages of American Foreign Policy: Weak Power, Great Power, Superpower, Hyperpower.

In The Four Ages of American Foreign Policy, Michael Mandelbaum offers a new framework for understanding the evolution of the foreign policy of the United States. He divides that evolution into four distinct periods, with each defined by the consistent increase in American power relative to other countries. His history of the four periods features engaging accounts of the major events and important personalities in the foreign policy of each era. Throughout, Mandelbaum highlights fundamental continuities in the goals of American foreign policy and in the way that policy was adopted and implemented.

Michael Mandelbaum is the Christian A. Herter Professor Emeritus of American Foreign Policy at The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. He has also taught at Harvard and Columbia Universities and the United States Naval Academy and served as senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations.
