NYU Center for Global Affairs, Scholarly Practitioner Baruch College. His new book-The Joint Ventured Nation: Why America Needs A New Foreign Policy is avail on Amazon
Edward Goldberg is one of the leading experts on the interplay between global politics and global economics. Having spent his entire life moving between the worlds of academia, international trade and trade finance, he has a unique and realistic understanding of globalization and international-political economics.
His new book, The Joint Ventured Nation: Why America Needs A New Foreign Policy, a historic and pragmatic defense of globalization argues that America’s fate is now interconnected to the other major industrial countries while its foreign policy is not adapting to this reality. That essentially America is no longer the indispensible nation, but now is the indispensible partner.
The reviews of The Joint Venture Nation have been exceptional with various scholars in the field praising it with the following comments:
“Edward Goldberg gives us a cogent account of how we arrived in this new era when all the major nations, like it or not, are joint venture partners with one another. Critics who hope to roll back the tide of globalization are the modern equivalent of King Canute. This book is a must read for anyone interested in 21st-century US foreign policy, the emergent global economy, and the political challenges we face both at home and abroad.”
—William M. LeoGrande, Professor Government and Dean Emeritus, School of Public Affairs, American University and co-author of Back Channel to Cuba
“I found the historical context from which Edward Goldberg developed his argument for joint ventures among nations and economies in a post-Westphalian world to be fascinating and compelling.”
—Wayne Porter, CAPT, USN (ret.) and co-author of A National Strategic Narrative
“As globalization is both feared and misunderstood, Edward Goldberg’s timely book offers lucid and original analysis, placing globalization within a larger historical, geopolitical and economic context. Scholarly, yet witty and concise, this should be on every US and European politician’s reading list in the coming year.”
—Dr. Irene Finel-Honigman, Adjunct Professor of International Affairs, School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University and author of A Cultural History of Finance
“The well thought-through discussion of why United States foreign policy is trapped in a world that is attributable to the failure to understand the far-reaching implications of how economic globalization is trumping political sovereignty. Discussing how to bring our foreign policy into the 21st century—reflecting the new reality of a globalized economic world—the author also addresses how the United States should deal with countries not part of that world, for example, Russia. A must read.”
—George Schwab, President Emeritus, National Committee on American Foreign Policy
“An innovative approach to the 21st-century world, and the US role in particular, creatively integrating the dynamics of the contemporary global economy and classical considerations of nation-state interests.”
—Bruce W. Jentleson, Henry Kissinger Chair, Kluge Center, Library of Congress and co-author of The End of Arrogance: America in the Global Competition of Ideas
