Mission Failure

America and the World in the Post-Cold War Era

Michael Mandelbaum

  • A sweeping account of American foreign policy in the post-Cold War era
  • Argues that the US cannot succeed when attempting to align vastly different societies more closely with Western ideology
  • Shows how it is not the presence of an ideological component to American foreign policy that leads to failure, but an overemphasis of it at the expense of a focus on hard interests
