Defiant Superpower: The New American Hegemonyby Donald Nuechterlein
Defiant Superpower recounts how the Bush administration's bold actions in response to the attacks of September 11, 2001, toppled the Taliban and displayed American strength. But by 2002 much of the world, including allies, had become alarmed by American assertiveness. While the Bush administration's defiant and unilateralist policies initially seemed to empower the United States, the pitfalls of this new American hegemony are now apparent. Here, Donald Nuechterlein suggests how policymakers should recognize the limits of the new hegemony in order to pursue America's realistic national interests.
