Book Releases

The second edition of WPI@LMU President Michael A. Genovese’s book, The Post-Heroic Presidency, has been released. Genovese and co-author Todd L. Belt explain how the last seven U.S. presidents exercised presidential power within the constraints of a globalized world. They propose a foundation upon which future presidents must base American foreign policy in a world undergoing increasingly disruptive change.

WPI@LMU fellows Kerstin Fisk and Jennifer M. Ramos’ new book, Preventive Force, brings together experts to examine the controversial strategy of preventive force, in the context of both full-scale war and drone strikes. This timely release comes as the U.S. is increasingly using military force to counter potential threats around the globe.
