Realism once again comes under attack in this volume, this time from the perspective of religious conservatives. Contrary to the title of the book, there is very little here about foreign policy after the Cold War. Except for George Weigel's spirited attack on the amoralism of the Bush administration's foreign policy, the articles tend toward very abstract discussions of, inter alia, the role of prudence and character in statesmanship. Much of the debate concerns the degree to which the Bible can be a reliable guide to foreign policy-not your typical subject among foreign-policy professionals, but an interesting one nonetheless.
