Abstract:

Noted Middle East authority Bennis explains the history and consequences of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. Deeply critical of American foreign policy in general and the Bush administration in particular, Bennis (Institute for Policy Studies) surveys the impact of U.S. militarism and neocolonialism on the Middle East and explains the origins and motivations of current pushes towards war. Much of her attention is spent on the numerous countries that impact and are impacted by the "War on Terrorism," leading to a more sophisticated analysis than works that simply view current events through the lens of a so-called "clash of civilizations." She suggests that current policies will create a singularly more dangerous world and calls upon Americans to push for an end to policies of empire.
