On the latest LGM podcast, Dr. Daniel Bessner and I discuss his book Democracy in Exile: Hans Speier and the Rise of the Defense Intellectual. The first of two podcasts with Daniel, this portion concentrates on the book itself, with discussion of the Cold War intellectual environment, the emergence of a particular line of thinking on the relationship between democracy and national security, and the evolution of the national security state. Next week’s installment will distill some lessons of this experience for modern thinking about progressive foreign policy.
