"The West" has been challenged by President Trump's policies, Russian covert actions, and domestic nativist and nationalistic tendencies. Stan Sloan, Visiting Scholar at Middlebury and author of Defense of the West, examines whether a perfect storm of external threats and internal politics is undermining Western values and interests.
