The disintegration of the Soviet Union has once again brought to the fore the question that has preoccupied American foreign policy since our nation's founding: what role should America take in the World? In Security and Sacrifice: Isolation, Intervention, and American Foreign Policy, Elliott Abrams describes and analyzes the international political system that faces the U.S. in the aftermath of the Cold War. Abrams argues, that the United States must first create a domestic consensus on just what America's role should be in a rapidly changing international order. However, as he points, standing in the way of such agreement is a fundamental dispute over values and interests, and it turns on one crucial question: When should the United States risk the lives of American soldiers to solve problems in other countries? Through Abrams analysis, and the twists and turns of American Foreign policy during the Cold War, there becomes a clearer picture for the future. Offering insight and recommendation,Abrams explores not only the alternatives to today's current foreign policy issues, but intrigues his audience by his forecast into the Clinton Administration and the future of American foreign policy; as well as recent analysis of the Bush legacy and the context for peaceful relations in the Gulf region.Elliott Abrams is the author of 'Security and Sacrifice: Isolation, Intervention, and American Foreign Policy', published 1995 under ISBN 9781558130494 and ISBN 1558130497.
