Summary: The past twenty-five years have seen an unraveling of order. The rules, policies, and instructions that have been observed since World War II have largely run their course. The author argues that the world needs an updated operating system that takes into account the need for a new American foreign policy in a changing twenty-first century. As he demonstrates, the world cannot have stability or prosperity without the United States, but the United States cannot be a force for these without its politicians and citizens reaching a new understanding--Adapted from back cover.
