Great Decisions: The Waning of Pax Americana?

Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs.  Developed by the Foreign Policy Association, the program intends to engage communities and broaden public involvement in foreign affairs.  The Foreign Policy Association provides background information and policy options for the eight most critical issues facing America each year.  Participants will view a related DVD and then participate in a discussion, led by Barbara Krebs of the League of Women Voters.  A briefing book is available at the library for check out or purchase.  The group meets on Thursday evenings February 1 through March 22, from 6:30-8:30 pm in the Montrose Library Meeting Room.

During the first months of Donald Trump’s presidency, the U.S. began a historic shift away from Pax Americana, the liberal international order that was established in the wake of World War II. Since 1945, Pax Americana has promised peaceful international relations and an open economy, buttressed by U.S. military power. In championing “America First” isolationism and protectionism, President Trump has shifted the political mood toward selective U.S. engagement, where foreign commitments are limited to areas of vital U.S. interest and economic nationalism is the order of the day. Geopolitical allies and challengers alike are paying close attention.

Book Club: A Gentleman in Moscow

Join us!  This is a new date and time starting February 2018.  The Book Club will meet on the first Saturday of the month at 9:00 a.m. in the meeting room at the Library. These books were chosen at the group’s meeting in August 2017. For more information, call Tania Hajjar at 970/249-9656 (ext. 3).

The selection for February 2018 is A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles, presented by Elaine McMillan.

He can’t leave his hotel. You won’t want to. From the New York Times bestselling author of Rules of Civility—a transporting novel about a man who is ordered to spend the rest of his life inside a luxury hotel. In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery. Brimming with humor, a glittering cast of characters, and one beautifully rendered scene after another, this singular novel casts a spell as it relates the count’s endeavor to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a man of purpose. -amazon.com.

Great Decisions: Russia’s Foreign Policy

Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs.  Developed by the Foreign Policy Association, the program intends to engage communities and broaden public involvement in foreign affairs.  The Foreign Policy Association provides background information and policy options for the eight most critical issues facing America each year.  Participants will view a related DVD and then participate in a discussion, led by Barbara Krebs of the League of Women Voters.  A briefing book is available at the library for check out or purchase.  The group meets on Thursday evenings February 1 through March 22, from 6:30-8:30 pm in the Montrose Library Meeting Room.

Under President Vladimir Putin, Russia is projecting an autocratic model of governance abroad and working to undermine the influence of liberal democracies, namely along Russia’s historical borderlands. Russia caused an international uproar in 2016, when it interfered in the U.S. presidential contest. But Putin’s foreign policy toolkit includes other instruments, from alliances with autocrats to proxy wars with the U.S. in Georgia, Ukraine and Syria. How does Putin conceive of national interests, and why do Russian citizens support him? How should the United States respond to Putin’s foreign policy ambitions?
