In this podcast, Glimpse Senior Correspondent Luke Phillips interviews Dr. Boys on the foreign policy trends and incidents of the Clinton Administration. Dr. Boys argues that President Clinton was first and foremost a foreign policy pragmatist who responded responsibly to the various crises the Post-Cold War world threw at him. Dr. Boys argues that Clinton’s was less a “grand strategy” presidency and more a “managerial” presidency focused on maintaining world order as it existed rather than seeking revolutionary new goals and arrangements.
Dr. James D. Boys is an Associate Professor of International Political Studies at Richmond University, London, and the author of “Clinton’s Grand Strategy: U.S. Foreign Policy in a Post-Cold War World.”
