Summary: There are important reasons for the significant course adjustments in Western foreign policy, which is currently focused on the Middle Eastern and Chinese "hot spots." Amitai Etzioni argues that America's "pivot" to make the Far East its military and strategic first priority is flawed in principle. China can and should be treated for the near future as a potential partner in a changing global order, rather than be made into an enemy. At the same time, he argues, the true hot spots continue to be in the Middle East, albeit not in Iraq or Afghanistan, but in Iran and Pakistan. Less urgent, but of great importance, are the ways the West deals with a complex and varied Muslim world..
