In a brilliant and revealing book destined to drive debate about the future of American power, Vali Nasr questions America’s dangerous choice to engage less — and matter less — in the world.
A second Arab Spring is brewing — not a hopeful clamour for democracy but rage at the US for its foreign policy of drones and assassinations.
Drawing on his in-depth knowledge of the Middle East and expertise in diplomacy, Nasr offers a powerful reassessment of American foreign policy that directs the country away from its failing relationships in the Middle East toward more productive, and less costly, partnerships with other foreign allies.
Forcefully persuasive, Vali Nasr’s book is a game changer for America as it charts a course in the Muslim world, Asia, and beyond.
