    More than just Foreign Policy - American Strategy

    This book has been getting some well deserved press in places like Atlantic Online. It is, in my opinion, a must read for every citizen interested in the future course of our country and culture. And that's not just foreign policy either - the choices we have to make in the next few years will affect the day-to-day lives of our grandchildren and our great-grandchildren. As Shakespeare pointed out 'Past is Prologue,' and the interest clusters and coalitions of past American politics continue to this day and are not likely to change anytime soon. After reading this book, one can attribute just about any new argument, no matter how concise, to a school of American thought dating back to the origins of the Republic. For example, the current debate over missile defense had similar politics to the construction in the early 1800's of the massive brick forts that sit at the entrances to most major US harbors. The book does an excellent job of providing historical structure to present and future debates. As the author points out, as world hegemon, we have some very important choices ahead. Again, EVERY educated citizen should read this book.
