Three Presidents and the Crisis of American Superpower
By (author) Zbigniew Brzezinski
Second Chance by Zbigniew Brzezinski
Book DescriptionFrom the most highly respected analyst of foreign policy writing today, this book presents a story of wasted opportunity and squandered prestige - the history of the last three U.S. presidents' foreign policy. The most distinguished commentator on foreign policy, former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, offers a reasoned but unsparing assessment of the foreign policy of America's last three presidential administrations. Though spanning less than two decades, these administrations cover a vitally important turning point in world history: the period in which the US, having emerged from the Cold War with an unprecedented degree of power and prestige, managed to squander both in a remarkably short time. This is a tale of decline: from the competent but conventional thinking of the first Bush administration, to the good intentioned self-indulgence of the Clinton administration, to the mortgaging of America's future by the "suicidal statecraft" of the second Bush administration. Brzezinski concludes with a chapter on how America can regain its lost prestige, if not its former dominance. This scholarly yet highly opinionated book is sure to be both controversial and influential.
