This exuberantly optimistic book celebrates victory in the Cold War and calls on the United States to make "the promotion of democracy. . . the centerpiece of American foreign policy," employing peaceful, open methods without abandoning the capacity to use military force and covert action if necessary. The author warns against resurgent isolationism while hoping for "a Pax Americana unlike any previous peace, one of harmony, not of conquest."
