Overview

Contributors, a number of whom currently have significant influence within the George W. Bush administration, speculate on coming challenges to U.S. foreign policy. Unanimous in their concern that the U.S. be able to exercise control (or "maintain stability") of world energy markets, especially related to oil, they explore how the changing financial structures of globalization and other factors of the new century change the playing board upon which the U.S. policy elites operate.
