Renowned for his compassionate and balanced thinking on international affairs, Stanley Hoffmann reflects here on the proper place of the United States in a world it has defined almost exclusively by 9/11, the war on terrorism, and the invasion of Iraq. A true global citizen, Hoffmann's analysis is uniquely informed by his place as a public intellectual with one foot in Europe, the other in America. In this brilliant essay, he considers point by point the events and actions that have led America down the path of imperialism, becoming a power at once arrogant, victorious, and unilateral. Tracing the significance of September 11 in the short term and over the long course of American history, Hoffmann explains the contradictions and the consequences for international order-and disorder.

Review:

"A witheringly accurate critique of the hubris and folly of the Bush administration. Hoffmann is generally dead on target in his condemnation of the Bush administration, the conceptual idiocy of the 'war on terror, ' and the wider chauvinism, ignorance, and Francophobia of the U.S. establishment and media.--Anatol Lieven "American Prospect "

Gulliver Unbound can be read in one sitting and contains a great deal of wisdom, not least of which is the observation, 'Iraq has become a trap for the Americans and a godsend for terrorists.'--Chalmers Johnson "The San Diego Union-Tribune "

Americans who wish to halt the drift toward imperialism should read this book.--Robert O. Keohane, Duke University

Stanley Hoffmann is America's wisest and most seasoned observer of transatlantic events. In Gulliver Unbound he delivers indispensable commentary on the hubris of America's imperial adventurism, the flaws in its approach to combating terrorism, and the future of the European-American relationship.--Samantha Power, author of A Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocide, winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize and the 2002 National Book Critics Circle Award

Throughout his distinguished career, Hoffmann has remained intellectually and personally bound to both America and France. In this engaging little book, he brings his accumulated wisdom and cosmopolitan sensibilities to bear on the current crisis in U.S.-European relations.... Full of insights and worries.--G. John Ikenberry, Princeton University "Foreign Affairs ""
