Professor Alexander talked about his book How America Got It Right: The U.S. March to Military and Political Supremacy, published by Three Rivers Press. He argued that America’s use of military power throughout its history, while sometimes wrongheaded, has been driven by an inclination to do good. Professor Alexander said that Americans imagine their country as being an island and are very quick to defend it against any threat from the outside world, even if that requires using its military overseas. During the event, he read from the introduction of his book, and answered questions from students in the audience. He is an adjunct instructor at the college. close
