Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In Defiant Superpower, Donald Nuechterlein uses the national interest model that he pioneered to assess the evolution of American international power since the attacks of September 11, 2001. With remarkable clarity of thought and expression, he evaluates both old and new discussions of the United States as an imperial power and concludes that it is a hegemon, albeit a limited one. By examining the requirements of homeland security, global order, American political values, and economic prosperity, Nuechterlein demonstrates both the powerful temptation of successive administrations to act outside traditional alliances and international organizations and the real and potential costs of such endeavors. This is a sober evaluation, not only of the transformations of American foreign policy since the end of the Cold War and 9/11, but of the choices that must be made to secure American influence in the future."
