America Overcommitted: United States National Interests in the 1980s

By Donald E. Nuechterlein
University Press of Kentucky, 1985
238 pp. $23.00
Purchase

A thoughtful tour of the globe in which the author divides countries and regions into four categories in terms of American interests: survival, vital, major and peripheral. The interests themselves are categorized as: defense of homeland, economic well-being, a favorable world order and promotion of values. He calls for a sensible ordering of priorities and for balancing ends and means. A useful guide for thinking about national security.
