Shields of the Republic: The Triumph and
Peril of America’s Alliances
by Mira Rapp-Hooper
June 23, 2020
11:00 - 11:30 am
Mira Rapp-Hooper reveals the remarkable success of America’s unprecedented
system of alliances developed during the Cold War. Today, China and Russia
seek to break America’s alliances through conflict and non-military erosion.
Meanwhile, U.S. politicians and voters are increasingly skeptical of alliances’
costs and benefits and believe we may be better off without them. But what
if the alliance system is a victim of its own quiet success? Rapp-Hooper
argues that America’s national security requires alliances that deter and
defend against military and non-military conflict alike.
