Temptations of Power examines the new security dilemma which confronted George W. Bush when terrorists proved on 9/11 that they could seriously wound a great military powers on home ground. The authors argue that the response was influenced by neo-conservative exaggeration of the efficacy of military power and belief in the US ability.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Jackson and Towle have written the best indictment of American foreign policy under the leadership of George W. Bush yet published...[They] have given us a snap shot of the deterioration of international relations. They have written a must-read - and have possibly told more than thy intended.' - Carl Cavanagh Hodge, International Journal

'...an empowering and engrossing book that encourages the reader to reflect on the world populus following events post 9/11...Jackson and Towle have provided a book that will be useful both as a text and reference, not only for academics and students of international relations, international policy and governance, but as a very readable book for the generalist interested in developing and forming an informed and honest opinion of the Bush administration and American international politics since the end of the Cold War.' - Victoria Redfern Australian Journal of Public Administration

The book's importance lies in its attempt to address the most controversial and important aspect of contempaory politics in a serious, multilateral and deeply political way... Jackson and Towle have written a brave book'

- Eleni Karasavvidou, The European Legacy
