US national security in the post-World War II years has been dominated by an internationalist/globalist policymaking establishment which scorns longstanding non-interventionist American traditions as isolationist. As part of a revitalized debate over the future of the United States role in the world, this volume reviews and critiques flaws in the establishment's strategic thinking and the policies they have wrought.
