Professor of Political Science and International Affairs Jason Davidson’s new book, America’s Entangling Alliances, was recently published by Georgetown University Press. Description: In America’s Entangling Alliances, Professor Davidson challenges long-held assumptions about the costs and benefits of American alliances. He shows that, contrary to conventional wisdom, the United States has not been averse to forming alliances for most of its history. In fact, U.S. presidents and Congress have viewed it as in the country’s best interest to enter into a variety of security arrangements from the beginning.

Davidson also discussed the United States’ geopolitical battle with China, as well as its partners in the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue – Australia, Japan and India – with Newsweek. Read more.
