Paradoxes of power: U.S. foreign policy in a changing world
This book provides a lively and readable introduction to current debates over U.S. power and purpose in world affairs. These debates involve two crucial questions: Should U.S. foreign policy focus on securing vital interests that are narrowly defined, or should the United States seek to spread U.S. institutions and values to other societies? Should the United States exercise maximum independence in the exercise of U.S. power abroad or work principally through multilateral institutions? This book brings together many different voices to answer these questions and to add to our understanding of the issues.
