In the second hour of today’s program I will air the second in a series of interviews with Dr. Thomas P.M. Barnett about his new book Great Powers. Today’s conversation is about chapter 3, a fascinating and provocative survey of American history organized around the argument that the U.S. has globalism built into its collective DNA, and that other nations, especially China, that seek expansion of their economic reach and political influence are following a path first cleared by us. Whether or not you agree that Vladimir Putin parallels Andrew Jackson, or that Jackson’s clearing of the Seminoles from Florida was our “first Tibet,” you will be drawn into the narrative if only for its glowing assessment of the Nixon-Reagan grand strategy that led to the crippling of the U.S.S.R.

The transcript of the first interview with Dr. Barnett is here.
