ON-Lion Letter
United States foreign policy regarding terrorism, China, Iran, North Korea, Russia, and international trade are at the center of America's public discourse this year.  In a recent podcast from The Federalist Society for Law & Public Policy Studies in Washington, D.C., Henry R. Nau offers a framework for thinking about these geopolitical challenges.

Author of Conservative Internationalism:  Armed Diplomacy Under Jefferson, Polk, Truman, and Reagan, Nau is a professor of political science and international affairs at the Elliott School of International Affairs at The George Washington University.  He is a faculty nominator in the Bradley Fellowship Program of The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee.

Avoiding the twin perils of overstretch and retrenchment, Nau believes that the combination of force, diplomacy, and compromise used by the four presidents covered in his book is the surest path to securing America's interests, while also promoting freedom.  During the podcast, he discusses the book and how policymakers should be thinking about America’s role in the world.

The Bradley Foundation also substantially supports The Federalist Society.
