Power Trip: U.S. Unilateralism and Global Strategy After September 11 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The September 11 attacks provided the new Bush administration an unprecedented opportunity to achieve these goals. The administration an now claim a new moral urgency, greater resources particularly in the military realm, more popular support for the costs of intervention overseas, and greater public acceptance of the leadership's aims and methods. It will chart the new terrain of foreign policy after September 11 and demonstrate how the Bush administration is building on the policies of its successors. It analyzes the motives and methods of key figures in the Defense Department and State Department promoting the new U.S. policies. Well-known and bestselling writers will contribute chapters on the new military strategy of the Bush administration, and its preoccupation with controlling access to natural resources and projecting U.S. economic interests through "hard" rather than "soft" power. They will examine the "Axis of Evil" targets of the war on terrorism--Iraq, Iran, and North Korea, as well as U.S targets in the Philippines, Indonesia, the Swahili coast of Africa, and Colombia. They will look at the cultural arm of the new unilateralism, form propaganda to Hollywood movies, as well as the domestic, impact of post-September 11 policies on spending priorities and civil liberties. Critical response to the new U.S. policies has come form many different sources: U.S. allies, strategic competitors such as Russia and China, the countries targeted in the war against terrorism, and dissenting public voices throughout the world, including the United State. This book will analyze the probable consequences of this response as well as the appropriate alternatives to current U.S. policies.
