Peter Beinart talked about his book, The Icarus Syndrome: A History of American Hubris, and he responded to telephone calls and electronic communications. He argues in the book for leaders who can “bury” U.S. “hubris” and realize that there are limits to what the U.S. can do on the world stage. He also discussed U.S. foreign policy, the belief that the U.S. should dominate in the world, and why he thinks that belief is flawed. close
