Today, even as it asserts itself globally, America lacks a grand strategy to replace the Cold War's 'containment of communism'. In this visionary book, Gary Hart, until recently co-chair of the U.S. Commission on National Security in the 21st Century, outlines a new principled approach, based on the power of American ideals, its 'fourth power'. Constitutional liberties, representative government, press freedom, and democratic principles, he argues, constitute a resource which is attractive to peoples worldwide, and may prove as important to national security as the three traditional powers -- military, economic, and political might.

Review:
"Hart questions notions of preemption and preventive war.... [He] offers a conceptual framework in which a "fourth power" -- "the power of principle" -- must be added to traditional American economic, political and military power as a major strategic asset internationally.... In their current formulation, [his ideas] could prove important as soon as next year. An active Kerry for President campaigner, Hart could be a senior appointee in a Kerry administration. (The Washington Post)
About the Author:
Former U.S. senator Gary Hart (D-Colorado) is author of thirteen books and a leading expert on national security and American foreign policy. A longtime member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, an international lawyer who has traveled to the former Soviet Union over 100 times, Hart recently completed a three-year assignment as co-chair of the U.S. Commission on National Security for the 21st Century, a body that before 9/11 both warned of a massive stateside attack and recommended the creation of a homeland security department. Hart has taught at Yale, University of California, and Oxford University, where he earned a D.Phil. in Politics in 2001.
