Despite a shared interest in foreign relations, international affairs
scholars and policy makers operate in different spheres, separated
by distinct goals and measures of success. Better connections between
these worlds of thought and action can lead to better public policy,
according to a new book.
Scholars, Policymakers & International Affairs: Finding Common Cause
(Johns Hopkins University Press) covers the obstacles of bridging that
gap and offers examples of when it was successfully narrowed. The book,
edited by Abraham Lowenthal and Mariano Bertucci, is a collection of 15
chapters written by a various policy makers and scholars with policy
experience about what has worked in the past and what hasn’t.
