Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 006119543X, Hardcover)This book is from one of the wisest voices in American politics: a bold new look at America's conflicts overseas since the end of the Cold War - and at the challenges of the future. In her first book in more than fifteen years, Jeane Kirkpatrick - Ronald Reagan's ambassador to the United Nations, and a legend in international relations - offers a bold and revisionist survey of two decades of American foreign policy. Since the end of the Cold War, Kirkpatrick argues, America's relationship with the U.N. has fractured, marred by mutual distrust, competing agendas, and continuing uncertainty over US involvement in conflicts among rogue nations overseas. In "Making War to Keep Peace", Kirkpatrick offers a tightly observed chronicle of the result: a period that has found the United States called upon to use force around the world - to mixed and often challenging results.
