With the invaluable assistance of the Hertog Foundation, AHS held a moderated discussion with acclaimed foreign policy scholar Robert Kagan on December 4th, 2018. Alongside AHS Director Dr. Gabriel Scheinmann, Dr. Kagan elucidated the organizing themes of his latest book: “The Jungle Grows Back: America and Our Imperiled World”. Kagan unflinchingly analyzed the failings of contemporary foreign policy. He forcefully challenged American leaders to acknowledge that peace demands power, and that the exercise of power demands sacrifice. Numerous AHS chapter officers and alumni attended. They were particularly pleased to receive copies of Kagan’s book.
