A CONVERSATION WITH STEPHEN J. HADLEY | HAND-OFF: THE FOREIGN POLICY GEORGE W. BUSH PASSED TO BARACK OBAMA - Over the past two years, former national security advisor Stephen J. Hadley has spearheaded a project to make accessible a collection of nearly thirty previously classified transition memoranda prepared by the George W. Bush administration for the nation’s transition to the Obama administration.
For the first time, these documents–along with a range of supporting commentaries and candid analyses from senior Bush administration National Security Council officials–are available to the public in a newly released book entitled Hand-Off: The Foreign Policy George W. Bush Passed to Barack Obama.
The Atlantic Council’s Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security hosted a conversation with Stephen Hadley reflecting on the Bush administration’s foreign policy legacy. As modern American presidents grapple with an array of shared challenges from Chinese and Russian revanchism, to terrorism, proliferation, and non-traditional security threats, Hand-Off‘s insights are vital to navigating today’s national security landscape.
