Overview

In 1997 and 1999 a very select group of analysts, practitioners, and scholars assembled at the University of Oklahoma to lay the groundwork for a new United States foreign policy that will promote our nation's ideals while protecting its vital interests in the post-cold war era. This carefully edited collection includes major policy statements and round-table discussions by the best minds of our time as they devise criteria for the employment of military force, economic and trade priorities, a broad covert intelligence mission, and the protection of our planet's ecology--all in the context of our pluralistic society and instantaneous global communication.

Beltway practitioners, serious students of foreign policy, and concerned lay people will find this a must-read book in today's global economy, where mid-level powers possess weapons of mass destruction, and internal wars and terrorism are on the increase. This book about the opportunities and challenges facing the United States should also become a widely used reader in university courses in international relations and foreign policy.

"[T]he result is about the best primer one could have in the field."--USA Today Magazine

This collection of brief essays is authored by the best and brightest in international politics, both academic and political, including Walter F. Mondale, Henry A. Kissinger, Jeane J. Kirkpatrick, Michael Oksenburg, Zbigniew Brzezinksi, and Sam Nunn. . . .[R]ecommended for all readership levels."--Choice

"Cover[s] about every aspect of US foreign policy one can think of: relations with particular nations (especially China), military challenges, intelligence gathering, trade policy, environmental policy, the role of the media."--Kirkus Reviews

"This book is a feast for any citizen concerned about America's future."--Loch K. Johnson
