BUSH LEAGUE DIPLOMACY: How the Neoconservatives Are Putting the World at Risk

Craig R. Eisendrath, Author, Melvin A. Goodman, Author . Prometheus $25 (268p) ISBN 978-1-59102-176-6

A former CIA official (Goodman) and ex-diplomat (Eisendrath) team up to examine how, in their opinion, the Bush administration has rolled back over half a century of foreign policy accomplishments. Current policy relies on bullying with military force, they argue, as it rejects the broad collaborative approach in effect from the founding of the U.N. to the first President Bush's coalition against Saddam Hussein in the Gulf War. Although Eisendrath and Goodman see some potential for change in recent administrative appointments, they emphatically urge that more direct action toward multilateralism must be taken to restore America's reputation abroad and counter the centralization of power in the presidency to prevent deterioration of the domestic situation.
