America Abroad

Why the Sole Superpower Should Not Pull Back from the World

Stephen G. Brooks and William C. Wohlforth

  • Provides a new and better way to think about the international system that provides a more nuanced understanding of the China's rise and how America's global role is shifting
  • Shows why the US can and should retain its effort to actively shape the global environment by continuing its 'deep engagement' grand strategy but should also refrain from an overly expansive style of global leadership
  • Provides the first systematic analysis of how world politics would change if America were to pull back and pursue foreign policy retrenchment
