Power and Superpower by Morton H. Halperin
Book DescriptionThe United States entered the twenty-first century as a global leader, emulated for its ideals as much as it is respected for its power to shape events. American leadership served as the bedrock for the international order, promoting prosperity and peace both at home and abroad. But in the first years of the new century, U.S. foreign policy--exemplified by war in Iraq, the rejection of international treaties, and disregard for traditional allies--gave the impression to many that the United States had abandoned that leadership role in favor of one premised on military power. In Power and Superpower , some of the United States' most distinguished and experienced policymakers and experts outline a foreign policy that would allow America to reclaim its status as a reliable and visionary global leader. The essays identify the pressing foreign policy issues currently facing the United States and provide analysis to underpin a progressive foreign policy that would call upon all of America's strengths and respect the commitments we share with the rest of the world.
