Description - Second Chance by Zbigniew Brzezinski
Former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski offers a reasoned but unsparing assessment of the last three presidential administrations foreign policy. Though they cover less than two decades, these three administrations span a vitally important turning point in world history: the period in which the United States, having emerged from the Cold War with an unprecedented degree of power and prestige, managed to squander both in a remarkably short time. The tale of these three administrations is a tale of decline: from the competent but conventional thinking of the first Bush administration, to the good intentions hobbled by self-indulgence of the Clinton administration, to the mortgaging of Americas future by the suicidal statecraft of the second Bush administration. Brzezinski concludes with a chapter on how America can regain its lost influence, if not its former dominance, in todays era of global political awakening. This scholarly yet highly opinionated book is both controversial and influential.
