Smart Power: Toward a Prudent Foreign Policy for America
Cato Institute, 2008 - 258 pages
Foreign policy expert Ted Galen Carpenter confronts the global challenges America faces, outlining a practical strategy that protects America's security while avoiding unnecessary and unrewarding military adventures. He looks at how U.S. forces remain mired in a nation-building mission in Iraq, while disagreements over Iraq policy and other matters have soured Washington's relations with long-time European allies.
