Episode 7: Power Passing
The United States and the United Kingdom have historically had a special relationship. Can this kind of enduring alliance be replicated, and if not, why not? As American hegemony wanes and China’s international influence rises, Kori Schake argues that shared values can propel common national interests and goals. And that these can endure even as countries’ relative power rises and falls.

A foreign-policy adviser to the McCain-Palin 2008 presidential campaign, she has held senior positions at the State Department and the National Security Council.
