Richard Haass - A World in Disarray: American Foreign Policy and the Crisis of the Old Order
While the greatest foreign policy challenges—terrorism, climate change, cyber warfare—are global, the recent Brexit vote is one indication that many nations are rejecting globalism’s open borders. In this urgent overview of today’s geo-politics, Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, a former senior Middle East advisor to President George H.W. Bush, and recipient of the Presidential Citizens Medal, argues that the world still needs a strong United States to keep it stable. The U.S., however, needs to address its own dysfunctional politics and blurred self-image to resume its leading role. Haass offers guidelines for ways America can heal itself, as well as specific regional policies going forward.
