The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars was chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1968 as the living memorial to the nation’s twenty-eighth president. It serves as the country’s key
nonpartisan policy forum, tackling global challenges through independent research and open dialogue. Bridging the worlds of academia and public policy, the Center’s diverse programmatic
activity informs actionable ideas for Congress, the administration, and the broader policy community.
The Woodrow Wilson Center Series shares in the Center’s mission by publishing outstanding scholarly and public policy-related books for a global readership. Written by the Center’s expert
staff and international network of scholars, our books shed light on a wide range of topics, including U.S. foreign and domestic policy, security, the environment, energy, and area studies.
