President American Foreign Policy Council

Colucci’s well-crafted description and critique of the national security doctrines of 16 American Presidents is a valuable resource for serious scholars as well as those creating national security doctrines for future presidents. A solid contribution.

THE INDIANAPOLIS COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN RELATIONS Affiliated with the American Committees on Foreign Relations

“As I told you the night of the meeting and the next morning, your presentation was excellent. You did a masterful job of squeezing more than two hours of a normal program into 44 minutes! I was approached by several members (liberal and conservative) who were impressed. Your ability to stay balanced, factual and avoid the traps a few of our members and guests tried to set, is commendable. Seems in today’s world it is important to cubby hole everybody as either conservative or liberal. Then the personal attacks start, all the while ignoring all the elements needed for intelligent discussions. The students at Ripon are lucky to have a professor with real life experiences and the gift to be a memorable teacher. I only remember 6 teachers in my educational life that were excellent.”

Alabama Committee on Foreign Relations

"The best evidence of a successful presentation is the gathering of members after it is over. You had 20 or so standing around wanting. Obviously, you were a big hit with our Committee. You do a truly outstanding job answering questions. I guess that brings out the teacher in you. But your responses were respectful, analytical and in depth."
