On behalf of the publisher and editors of Modern Age, I am pleased to thank Richard J. Bishirjian for organizing the “Symposium on American Foreign Policy,” which constitutes the bulk of this issue, as well as for providing a brief introduction and a fine lead essay. Professor Bishirjian has recruited a group of astute and insightful thinkers whose work will prove both engaging and provocative.
Somewhat abashed, I must also, however, offer an apology to Professor Garrett Sheldon for confusing him, in the editorial introduction to last summer’s issue, with his ancestor Gilbert Sheldon, Archbishop of Canterbury during the Restoration. The only relief to my chagrin is the reflection that at least I mistakenly identified Professor Sheldon with a forebear of such eminence and happy memory. —RVY
