Overview

With the end of the Cold War and the election of Bill Clinton as president, anxiety about America's economic future has replaced foreign affairs as the country's main concern. The United States needs to redefine its national security in terms of a strong domestic policy. But will this lead to a new isolationism that would weaken American ties to the world?
