Stewart Patrick discusses his new book, The Sovereignty Wars: Reconciling America with the World.

Nearly a century after the United States rejected the League of Nations, debates over U.S. national sovereignty have never been more heated. Unfortunately, contemporary debates over how to defend and exercise that sovereignty are confused. In his book, Patrick examines how to protect sovereignty while advancing American interests in the global age.
