Why is he framing a book on political geography in terms of political idealism and realism?

Why does Kaplan begin a book about political geography with so many ideas and
events that signal a relative decline in American foreign policy since the Cold War?
Why is he framing a book on political geography in terms of political idealism and
realism? Can you tell whether he sides with the idealists or realists?
Why is Kelly’s goal for the text useful? Based on what you know so far, what can a more
objective definition of geopolitics offer the debate on US grand strategy and security?
Consider some implications of this module’s reading for a Christian World View. What
does it mean for example, for a Christian to choose idealism over realism—or vice
versa—as a guide to US foreign policymaking? A realist, for example, embraces the
‘dirty hands problem’, understood as the need for the US to accept a certain amount of
suffering in the world, (famine, even genocide, etc.) due to various constraints on its
ability to intervene, whether for diplomatic, resource-based, or technical reasons, but that
doing so allows the US to avoid, survive, deter, or defeat more powerful enemies another
day? Or do you believe that where there is a Christian will, there is always a way to avoid
choosing between the lesser evils described above? Not an easy question for sure, but
Kaplan lays this tension out through the story of Wieseltier’s criticism of Bill Clinton in
the 1990s Bosnia crisis, so it is not a mere academic question.
