CHOICE Review

This collection of essays by leading US foreign policy scholars G. John Ikenberry, Thomas J. Knock, Anne-Marie Slaughter, and Tony Smith examines the controversial, sweeping changes in national security policy that the Bush administration pursued after September 11, 2001. These changes were seen by many as a departure from the Wilsonian liberal tradition of cooperation and multilateralism. The question posed by the above scholars is whether the Bush foreign policy, and the Iraq War in particular, trace their origin to the Wilsonian liberal tradition. While some argue that the Bush administration followed the Wilsonian tradition, others argue that the Wilsonian vision was not directly concerned with imposing democracy but rather with consultation, consensus building, prudence, restraint, rule of law, and cooperation with other states. All of the aforementioned scholars agree that the Iraq War has put the US's long commitment to liberal internationalism in jeopardy. Instead of cooperating and building consensus, the Bush administration unilaterally announced the new rules of global security and imposed them through US military power. This makes US power controversial, and even illegitimate. For peaceful coexistence in the 21st century, these scholars correctly encourage a return to the Wilsonian tradition to make the world safe and prosperous. Summing Up: Recommended. All readership levels. K. M. Zaarour Shaw University
