Professor Tony Smith talked about his book Why Wilson Matters: The Origin of American Liberal Internationalism and Its Crisis Today, in which he offers his thoughts on the impact of President Woodrow Wilson on American foreign policy from the 1940s to today. In his book, the author argues that Wilson’s liberal internationalism has been hijacked by today’s “neo-Wilsonianism” that is marked by America’s entry into Iraq and subsequent foreign policy. close
