  • 385 Russell Senate Office Building (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

With tensions escalating from Venezuela to the Korean Peninsula and deployments to the Middle East again in the news, Dr. Toft’s research provides timely analysis about the efficacy of military action.

Why is this the case? What explains our government’s increased reliance on armed force? Most importantly, how might America diversify its statecraft to accomplish limited foreign objectives while husbanding military strength to preserve our most vital interests? RSVP
