Main Description
" When the first edition of America Recommitted was published in 1991, the world was passing through a period of sweeping political and social change. The Cold War was over; China had reverted to harsh authoritarian rule; U.S.-led forces were deployed in Saudi Arabia for potential military action against Iraq; the Soviet Union was on the verge of disintegration; and the unraveling of Yugoslavia had set the stage for brutal ethnic conflicts in Bosnia and Kosovo. In the midst of this widespread upheaval, the United States reassessed its own role as the sole remaining superpowerA3/4a process that continues today. This new edition features three new chapters that assess U.S. foreign policy during the last two years of the Bush presidency and the first seven years of the Clinton administration, bringing new data and insights to the questions that have challenged U.S. policymakers during the 1990s.

Unpaid Annotation
The first edition of America Recommitted was published in 1991, just as a sweeping transformation of the international environment took place: China had reverted to a harsh authoritarian rule; the Soviet Union was on the verge of disintegration; U.S.-led forces had been deployed to Saudi Arabia but the Gulf War had not yet been fought; the former Yugoslavia was unraveling, setting the stage for later military interventions in Bosnia and Kosovo. A decade later, Don Nuechterlein updates and expands upon his previous work, offering a clear assessment of the United States' national interests and drawing conclusions about the proper role of the world's only remaining superpower.
