Overview

George W. Bush's election and the confusion and fear that followed Sept. 11, 2001, combined to allow a small group of radical intellectuals to seize control of US national security policy. Foreign policy experts Halper (Cambridge U.) and Clarke (Cato Institute)—mainstream Republicans and former cold warriors—show how an inexperienced president was persuaded to abandon his campaign pledges and the bipartisan diplomacy that had managed the Soviet threat for half a century and adopt a neo-conservative foreign policy emphasizing military confrontation and "nation building." The costs, the authors argue, have been great and the benefits few. Their analysis lays out how incremental changes have created a huge shift in just a few years, and why the casualty is America's moral authority. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
