This book describes how the ideology of American global pre-eminence originated during the presidency of George Bush, developed in the 1990s, gained power with the election of George W. Bush, and reshaped American foreign policy after September 11 2001.

Structured as a narrative, this account deals with government policymakers and outside advocates. It tells the story of the development of unipolarist ideology and its role in recent American foreign policy. It makes an argument about the nature and problems of this ideology, emphasizing that an unrivaled superpower makes the whole world its geopolitical neighborhood.
