New Book Review: Jacob Heilbrunn’s America Last

The Libertarian Institute published my latest book review critique of Jacob Heilbrunn’s America Last. Beyond its stated goal, which was at best a mixed bag, Heilbrunn’s tome also attempts to rehabilitate a painfully orthodox interpretation of American foreign policy and its liberal internationalist underpinnings. Much like David Frum’s recent attempt to “uncancel” Woodrow Wilson, Heilbrunn’s book attempts to breathe new life into a beleaguered liberal consensus by offering an often ahistoric and blinkered view of the past.
