"Assembling a team of sharp experts, tethering them to a clear frame of concepts and directions, and then carrying an informed evaluation of the position of the U.S. in a world it seeks to lead, Kolodziej and Kanet have produced a work that will shape and focus our debate as we head into the intellectual turmoil of the 2008 election. This volume presents the worldview more clearly than the administration itself and then takes it apart with analytical acumen in a critique that both defenders and detractors will have to take into account."
—I. William Zartman, Jacob Blaustein Distinguished Professor of International Organization and Conflict Resolution, School of Advanced International Studies, The Johns Hopkins University
Leading scholars and policy analysts from nine countries assess the impact of the Bush Doctrine on world order, explain how the United States reached its current low standing internationally, and propose ways that the country can repair the untold damage wrought by ill-conceived and incompetently executed security and foreign policies. Contributors focus on the principal regions of the world where they have expertise: Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, and Russia.
The contributors agree that future security and foreign policies must be informed by the limitations of U.S. economic, cultural, and military power to shape world order to reflect American interests and values. American power and influence will increase only when the United States binds itself to moral norms, legal strictures, and political accords in cooperation with other like-minded states and peoples.
