Overview

Did the United States "win" the Cold War? In its self-congratulatory euphoria, argues Thomas McCormick in this new edition of his highly acclaimed study, America neglected a twenty-year process of political and economic devolution—the real threat to global peace and prosperity. Revised andupdated through 1993, it describes how the end of the Cold War affected the United States's global role as well as suggesting what possibilities lie ahead for a restructured world-system.

An incredible book for those interested in American foreign policy. I should say, though, that the book is clearly written for a graduate student or scholar. It is dense and dry - but makes an incredibly important point: America's power is weakening because of its continued investment in military expenditures instead of economic advancements. I think this book is a must read for any future American political, military or business leader.
