Beyond Fear: America's Role in an Uncertain World
Produced by the Stanley Foundation with KQED Public Radio

Every day the latest headlines reflect a world filled with fear.

Terrorism, war, disaster, and disease are grim realities brought closer to home in our increasingly connected world. And, they ultimately shape America's national security and foreign policies.

But fear itself cannot drive our daily lives.

Released in May 2007, "Beyond Fear: America's Role in an Uncertain World" goes beyond the headlines with expert insight and field reporting from Africa, Asia, and Europe and explores new scenarios for US global leadership built on common action, trust, and hope.

"Beyond Fear" features host David Brancaccio; producers Simon Marks, Kristin McHugh, and Keith Porter; and correspondent Jocelyn Ford.
