Join David E. Sanger, National Security Correspondent for The New York Times, as he engages in a lively exploration of the hot-spots that pose the biggest challenges to the United States, from the Middle East to East Asia. Sanger explores the question of whether America’s influence is in decline, as other powers rise and old alliances fray on issues ranging from American surveillance to its inward turn, and what it will take to remain the dominant power over the next decades. Sanger offers penetrating analysis based on a keen intellect and deep reporting inside Washington and around the globe.
“Outstanding! The full range of his talent was on display – his insider’s knowledge of Washington politics, his ability to place current events in historical context, his skill at connecting with his audience, his knack for explaining complex issues, and not least, his humor.” The College of William and Mary

Sanger writes compelling front-page analyses from both the White House and around the globe. He exposes and explains the complex events of our time.
A 30-year veteran of The New York Times and a regular guest on CBS’ Face the Nation, Sanger has become known as one of the nation’s most lucid analysts of geopolitics, national security and globalization. His years as a foreign correspondent gave him a unique view into the rise of Asia, nuclear proliferation, global competition, and a volatile Middle East. He has been a member of two teams that won the Pulitzer Prize. Sanger has been awarded numerous honors for national security and foreign policy coverage.
His previous bestseller, The Inheritance: The World Obama Confronts and the Challenges to American Power, is an in-depth examination of American foreign policy successes and failures. TIME called it a “behind-the-scenes account…laced with scoops and secret conversations about a world spinning out of America’s control.
