Description

This policy-relevant study of US Foreign policy, written in the light of September 11, examines US actions since the 1970s in the critical geographical arena of the Middle East. It argues that the more that the US has militarized the region, the less secure have the American people become. The US faces a stark contrast: to continue imposing a Pax Americana, or to promote real peace based on human rights, international law and sustainable development.
