Beginning with a """"telling phone call from Condi,"""" the former president of the UN Security Council tells for the first time the behind-the-scenes story of the Iraq war, as seen from an international perspective. Ambassador Muoz examines the United States' controversial decision to take a unilateral stand and the repercussions for both the U.S. and the rest of the world. This fascinating case study explains why a multilateral approach to foreign policy, including reliance on international organizations such as the UN, is imperative in today's world. A Solitary War offers a compelling argument for rebuilding trust among the international community and returning to a truly cooperative global order.
