The President's Inbox

Each week until the Iowa caucuses, host James M. Lindsay will discuss a major foreign policy challenge with two experts who disagree over how the United States should respond to it. Subscribe to hear debates about the U.S. role in the world, how the United States should handle a rising China, and more.

This project was made possible in part by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
