Those interested in foreign policy will likely get much from this, but those not interested in foreign policy should avoid it. Bacevich makes the case that American foreign policy since the Cold War has persisted in enhancing America's power and influence in an imperial fashion, despite the mixed political make-up of its presidents in that period. The political criticisms have been largely superficial, while substantively both parties have shared agendas. This is an interesting account of America's foreign policy from 1989-2001. But it is definitely not for everyone.
