The United States has carved the world into five pieces, maintaining troops and military leadership in each. Yet outside military and defense circles, the potential impact of post-1990 American strategic reach-or perhaps overreach-has not been given sufficient attention. This timely reader fills this gap by collecting the perspectives of American presidents, policymakers, military officers, establishment think tanks, and critical scholars. The text and accompanying CD bring together in one place a synthesis of official and semi-official views of post-1990 regional security agendas and of the evolving perception of post-Cold War threat scenarios. The CD accompanying the book sends readers directly to major policy documents and studies described in the text. The book and CD combined offer teachers a unique resource, providing a wealth of stimulating material for the classroom that is sure to promote critical thinking and spark lively discussion and debate.
