Summary
A brilliant meditation on the nature of the American empire ... Few books I've read on recent U.S. foreign policy cut both as deep and as broadly as this one.' Professor Marilyn Young, New York University 'David Ryan has given us a fine example of how to write contemporary history ... provides readers with a real understanding of the dilemmas of the American empire.' Professor Lloyd Gardner, Rutgers University 'An essential critique of the world of the 21st century.' Professor William S. Lucas, University of Birmingham David Ryan examines the similarities between US foreign policy and tactics in Vietnam and the emergence of the neo-conservative 'war on terror'. Is America's new policy of pre-emptive action really any different from the period before the 9/11 attacks? Turning the 'clash of civilizations' thesis on its head, Ryan presents a careful analysis of the evolution of US foreign policy. He examines the Project for the New American Century and the foreign interventions of the 1980s, the first Gulf War, the invasion of Afghanistan and lastly Iraq. Engaging seriously with the issues, this is a key read for all students of history and international politics
