Overview

The Bush administration's emphasis on a preemptive first strike doctrine,along with its resort to unilateral decision making and commitment to sustaining US hegemony in the world, has challenged the very fundamentals of both the world political order and American political institutions. In this work, leading American scholars explore how these policies have been made, the premises upon which they are based, and their possible consequences for
US domestic institutions and its position in the world. The workconcludes with analyses of the changing US relationship to the European Union and the United Nation nations, while offering different perspectives on the necessity of and the prospects for the new American empire.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Preemption and prevention are age-old instruments of statecraft that have acquired new relevance after 9/11 and the U.S. war in Iraq. Striking First provides a variety of expert perspectives on the role of preemption and prevention in the evolution of U.S. strategic doctrine, the internal political struggles that shaped that doctrine, the impact of these changes on American presidential power and legal processes, and their ramifications for the international order and the limits of American power. One cannot comprehend our rapidly changing world without understanding these international and domestic processes, and Striking First provides timely and penetrating insights on these critical subjects."
—Jack S. Levy, Rutgers University

"The alarmed contributors to this book recognize that America's strategic doctrine stands at a critical turbaning point with far-reaching future implications. One need not agree with all the arguments advanced by the authors to this most timely volume to recognize they tap into vital questions on preemptive war. The volume should contribute importantly to the needed public debate among everyone concerned with thre role of the United States in world affairs."—Charles F. Hermann, Texas A&M University
