schema:description"Historian Cole disentangles the key foreign policy issues that America is grappling with today, from our dependence on Middle East petroleum to the promotion of Islamophobia by the American right, and delivers his informed advice on the best way forward. His ability to take the Muslim perspective into account when looking at East-West relations make his insights well-rounded and prescient as he suggests a course of action on fundamental issues like religion, oil, war, and peace. With substantive recommendations for the administration on how to move forward in key countries such as Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran, this book reveals how we can repair the damage of the disastrous foreign policy of the last eight years and forge ahead on a path of peace and prosperity.--From publisher description."@en
