America Between the Wars: From 11/9 to 9/11: The Misunderstood Years Between the Fall of the Berlin Wall and the Start of the War on Terrorby Chollet Chollet
Synopses & Reviews
On November 9, 1989, the Berlin Wall collapsed, taking the Cold War down with it. The next twelve years passed in a haze of self-congratulation, Republican confusion, and angst, and economic prosperity—until they ended abruptly with a stunning catastrophe on September 11, 2001.
In America Between The Wars, Derek Chollet and James Goldgeier blend deep expertise with broad access to both parties political and policy establishments to find out how—and why—America failed to recognize that when we became the sole superpower with responsibility for the worlds oversight, we overlooked how the new world actually worked.
Chollet and Goldgeier examine how the decisions and debates of the years between the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989, and the collapse of the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001, shaped the events, arguments, and politics of the modern world.
