Should the United States ply an isolationist or interventionist course in the world? This contentious question has driven intense debate since the start of the twentieth century, when the United States first emerged as a truly global power. All manner of political and intellectual luminaries, like Theodore Roosevelt, William Randolph Hearst, Mark Twain, Booker T. Washington, among others, vociferously weighed in on the matter at the time.  The True Flag connects the first “grand debate” over U.S. foreign policy to our own contemporary questions and issues.

Stephen Kinzer is the author of The BrothersResetOverthrowAll the Shah’s Men, and other books. An award-winning foreign correspondent, he served as The New York Times’ bureau chief in Turkey, Germany, and Nicaragua and as The Boston Globe’s Latin America correspondent. He is a senior fellow at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University and writes a column on world affairs for The Boston Globe.

Harvard Club members are welcome to the WorldBoston member price of $15.
