FROM THE PREFACE

THIS BOOK IS ONE OF A SERIES of publications released by the Academy of Political Science on timely subjects of special importance in the fields of public and international affairs. Articles from Political Science Quarterly comprise this volume. Contributors examine U.S. foreign policy during Donald Trump’s presidency and significance for the future of transatlantic relations and great power competition.

FROM THE INTRODUCTION

FOR THE MOST PART, these articles see a mix of continuity and change across pre-Trump, Trump era, and post-Trump American foreign policy, though not necessarily the same mix. All give Trump low marks for his chaotic style in foreign policy, but by no means are all eager to settle back into the pre-Trump habits of U.S. leadership of the liberal international order. Some see Trumpian turbulence as having created opportunities to embark in new directions. Readers who are willing to risk the post-traumatic stress of revisiting Trump’s diplomacy will be rewarded with these insights.
