In this timely, thoughtful, and important book, at once far-seeing and brilliantly readable, America's most famous diplomatist explains why we urgently need a new and coherent foreign policy and what our foreign policy goals should be in this new millennium. In seven accessible chapters, Does America Need a Foreign Policy? provides a crystalline assessment of how the United States' ascendancy as the world's dominant presence in the twentieth century may be effectively reconciled with the urgent need in the twenty-first century to achieve a bold new world order. With a new Afterword by the author that addresses the situation in the aftermath of September 11, Does America Need a Foreign Policy? asks and answers the most pressing questions of our nation today.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I read Dr. Kissinger's book and found it correct in the evaluation of world affairs. Dr. Kissinger is perhaps one of the best (if not the best) foreign policy mind we have in this country. As for the critiques of the Democrats, Dr. Kissinger is just writing what is true. I respect and admire Madeline Albright but her mishandling(not monitoring weapons development) of the India-Pakistan situation could have led to a new nuclear war, the person who wrote the first review said that he( or she) read the book only 1/3 of the way through, so they a writing about a book of which they know very little. Dr. Kissinger is a brilliant foreign policy mind and we are lucky to have him around.
