A ‘transnational’ America

Dartmouth College’s Donald Pease says America is “the most lonely of superpowers,” an “exception to the laws of (other) nations” and simultaneously “a nation of immigrants, but a nation also hospitable to persons from across the planet.” He discusses Barack Obama’s transnational presidency and our transnational country with Christopher Lydon on Open Source.

Pease also recently interviewed with The Korea Times about American exceptionalism, former President Bush’s war on terror, and Obama’s presidential campaign and the change that his subsequent election meant for America.

Pease is author of The New American Exceptionalism, forthcoming in November.
