Abstract:

When Kirkpatrick died in December 2006, she had just completed this survey of American foreign policy in the post-Cold War age: a revisionist assessment of two decades of American interventions abroad--a troubled period of small successes, tragic failures, and important lessons for our future. Since the end of the Cold War, she argues, America's relationship with the world has been compromised by its mutual distrust with the United Nations, and by continuing uncertainty over U.S. involvement in conflicts among rogue nations overseas. She offers a chronicle of a period in which the United States has increasingly used force around the world--to mixed and often challenging results; illuminates the shift from the first Bush administration's ambitious vision of a New World Order to the overambitious nation-building efforts of the Clinton administration; explores where we have gone wrong; and raises lingering questions about what perils tomorrow might hold.--From publisher description.
