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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This timely book offers a tour of different perspectives on the purpose and role of American power in the contemporary era, demonstrates how this global context is likely to shape regional security arrangements over the coming years, and considers the range of consequences of American foreign policy on regional developments. -- Michael Barnett, University of Wisconsin-Madison
Strategy for Empire offers readers a balanced and insightful interpretation of the most momentous global issue of our time-whither America? What makes this volume so valuable is its analysis of this question from a variety of regional and political angles. Brian Loveman is to be commended for pulling together such a collection so effectively. -- Richard Falk, Albert G. Milbank Professor of International Law Emeritus, Princeton University
Strategy for Empire is a well-balanced collection of primary and secondary resources to help students think critically about one of the key questions confronting the world today-will the United States be a constructive or destructive leader? Neither Democrats nor Republicans escape scrutiny, and the authors writing specifically for this volume help us see the continuity in U.S. foreign policy as well as the new twists under the current Bush administration. There is plenty of material here for a lively discussion at the undergraduate or graduate level, and the CD-ROM is a handy resource. -- David R. Mares, University of California, San Diego
