The Essential Films on American Grand Strategy

In Foreign Policy, AHS speaker and Duke University chapter faculty adviser Peter Feaver discusses his new class, "American Grand Strategy Through Film":

"Popular films are more likely to capture the public imagination and thereby reflect and possibly influence public opinion and policymakers. Popular films depict a certain understanding of America's global role, usually in a time-bound way -- so a movie from early in the Vietnam war would be quite different from a movie about Vietnam made much later."
