For over 60 years the Foreign Policy Association has encouraged the creation of discussion groups throughout the United States to examine some of the world's greatest challenges and dilemmas. This year's eight topics are: The Waning of Pax Americana?; Russia's Foreign Policy; China and America: The New Geopolitical Equation; Media and Foreign Policy; Turkey: A Partner in Crisis; U.S. Global Engagement and the Military; South Africa's Fragile Democracy; and Global Health: Progress and Challenges. We will read and discuss the Great Decisions 2018 briefing book for this course. Each of its eight chapters is about 10 pages long. This book can be ordered for $30 plus shipping from the Foreign Policy Association at fpa.org. We anticipate lively discussions about these timely and controversial issues.Facilitated Discussion
