Brent Scowcroft, former U.S. National Security Advisor

“Most foreign policy practitioners in the United States and elsewhere seem to avoid contact with academic theory, and scholars generally reciprocate; indeed this gap has widened in recent years. Lowenthal and Bertucci are right to argue that this gap can and should be bridged, to benefit both theory and practice. This book provides thoughtful, practical and timely suggestions for doing so.” —Joseph S. Nye, Jr., Harvard University, author of The Future of Power

“Lucid and engaging, this book seeks out voices from well-known academics and policymakers, along with experts whose work regularly bridges the gap between the worlds of international affairs and serious scholarship.”—Steve Reifenberg, Kellogg  Institute for International Studies, University of Notre Dame

“This timely volume is a ladder thrown across the yawning gap between academe and the policy world. It is packed with helpful, firsthand advice for those who might wish to cross over from those on both sides who have successfully made the journey.” —Jessica Mathews, President, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
