The unifying theme of the alarmed essays in this book is that the presidential election of 1988 coincides with an epochal time of decision for America. Will the nation continue to follow outmoded assumptions concerning hegemonic military and political power, or will it respond constructively to the reality that this is no longer-if it ever was-"the American century"? The authors call for a replacement of geopolitics with "geoeconomics."
