Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 080613271X, Paperback)

In 1997 and 1999 a very select group of analysts, practitioners, and scholars assembled at the University of Oklahoma to lay the groundwork for a new United States foreign policy that will promote our nation's ideals while protecting its vital interests in the post-cold war era. This carefully edited collection includes major policy statements and round-table discussions by the best minds of our time as they devise criteria for the employment of military force, economic and trade priorities, a broad covert intelligence mission, and the protection of our planet's ecology--all in the context of our pluralistic society and instantaneous global communication.

Beltway practitioners, serious students of foreign policy, and concerned lay people will find this a must-read book in today's global economy, where mid-level powers possess weapons of mass destruction, and internal wars and terrorism are on the increase. This book about the opportunities and challenges facing the United States should also become a widely used reader in university courses in international relations and foreign policy.
