In Fourteen Points for the Twenty-First Century: A Renewed Appeal for Cooperative Internationalism, Richard H. Immerman and Jeffrey A. Engel bring together a diverse group of thinkers who take up Wilson's call for a new world order by exploring fourteen new directions for the twenty-first century. The contributors—scholars, policymakers, entrepreneurs, poets, doctors, and scientists—propose solutions to contemporary challenges such as migration, global warming, health care, food security, and privacy in the digital age. Taken together, these points challenge American leaders and policymakers to champion an international effort, not to make America great again, but to work cooperatively with other nations on the basis of mutual respect.

"In this impressive new collection, some of today's most innovative thinkers envision ways to address the unique global challenges of the twenty-first century. Insightful, provocative, arresting, and often compelling, the essays that Immerman and Engel have assembled are worthy heirs of Woodrow Wilson's original vision for the international system and should command the attention of scholars and policymakers alike."—William Inboden, Executive Director of the Clements Center for National Security, University of Texas at Austin
"This volume of distinguished international scholarship transforms President Woodrow Wilson's famous Fourteen Points of 1918 into fourteen points which twenty-first century Americans now must debate. These sophisticated, well-written, and necessary analyses demonstrate how a 'new internationalism' must include paramount problems Wilson never had to consider, such as climate change, artificial intelligence, and multinational migration. As the book's editors aptly put it, this volume is 'to start conversation'—absolutely necessary conversation."—Walter LaFeber, The Andrew Tisch and James Tisch University Professor Emeritus, Cornell University
