Chapter 17: The Morning After
In this laudatory and highly technical essay anthology, Natsios and other alumni of the George H.W. Bush administration detail their former boss’s foreign policy achievements.... Natsios and his cohorts succeed in burnishing Bush’s legacy and advocating for a gradualist, multilateral approach to foreign policy. Students of international affairs will find this collection of insider perspectives illuminating.
. . . an insiders’ account of the foreign policy “successes” and “achievements” of President George H. W. Bush.
Transforming Our World offers a compelling example of how, with effective leadership, the judicious use of U.S. power, and a clear sense of purpose, U.S. foreign policy can both serve core national interests and make a constructive impact on world politics.
