Abstract

Dr. Christopher Preble (vice president for defense and foreign policy studies at the Cato Institute) addresses the numerous polls that show that Americans want to reduce our military presence abroad. He explores the aims, costs, and limitations of the use of this nation's military power. In Preble's book, The Power Problem, he makes the case that the foreign policy experts who disdain the public's perspectives are wrong. Preble offers audience members a scholarly perspective on the issue.
