America and the World by Brent Scowcroft

Book Description

The two most respected figures in American foreign policy define the international challenges facing the next president. This will be the must-read foreign policy book of the season.America's status as a world power and the nature of power itself are at historic turning points. In traditional terms, the US is the most powerful force in international relations since the Roman Empire, yet the ways that power can usefully be projected and the limits on what it can achieve are not what they were even fifteen years ago. It's essential that America understand and adapt to the new security environment. Two of the most respected figures in American foreign policy are Zbigniew Brzezinski and Brent Scowcroft - both former National Security Advisors.In "America and the World" they dissect, in spontaneous and unscripted conversations moderated by David Ignatius, the most significant foreign policy challenges facing the US, the Middle East, Russia, China, Europe, the Third World, the changing nature of power in a globalized world, and what Brzezinski has called the 'global political awakening'. While one author is a Republican and the other a Democrat, both are seen as independent, non-partisan voices of the centre. They don't agree on everything, but they share a great deal of common ground. In particular, they agree on the need to adapt to a new international environment. "America and the World" will explore both their agreements and their disagreements, and in so doing, it will define the centre of responsible opinion on American foreign policy at a time when the nation's decisions could determine how long it remains a superpower.
