Overview


On November 9, 1989, the Berlin Wall collapsed, taking the Cold War down with it. The next twelve years passed in a haze of self-congratulation, Republican confusion, and angst, and economic prosperity—until they ended abruptly with a stunning catastrophe on September 11, 2001.

In America Between The Wars, Derek Chollet and James Goldgeier blend deep expertise with broad access to both parties’ political and policy establishments to find out how—and why—America failed to recognize that when we became the sole superpower with responsibility for the world’s oversight, we overlooked how the new world actually worked.

The recently published book by James Goldgeier and Derek Chollet, America Between the Wars: From 11/9 to 9/11, is an excellent overview of a recent historical period that defied categorization. Discussing the period between the fall of the Berlin Wall '11/9/1989' and the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center '9/11/01', Goldgeier and Chollet provide a concise and insightful accounting of the coinciding international challenges and domestic debates America experienced during those years. Goldgeier and Chollet recapture both the auspiciousness and anxieties of the foreign policy elite in the wake of communism¿s collapse and the Gulf War victory and chronicle how the unresolved debates and crises during that period have shaped many of the challenges facing America in the present day international arena.
