    Description

    A major theoretical statement by a distinguished political scholar explains why a policy of liberal hegemony is doomed to fail 

    In this major statement, the renowned international-relations scholar John Mearsheimer argues that liberal hegemony, the foreign policy pursued by the United States since the Cold War ended, is doomed to fail. It makes far more sense, he maintains, for Washington to adopt a more restrained foreign policy based on a sound understanding of how nationalism and realism constrain great powers abroad. 

    It is widely believed in the West that the United States should spread liberal democracy across the world, foster an open international economy, and build institutions. This policy of remaking the world in America’s image is supposed to protect human rights, promote peace, and make the world safe for democracy. But this is not what has happened. Instead, the United States has ended up as a highly militarized state fighting wars that undermine peace, harm human rights, and threaten liberal values at home. Mearsheimer tells us why this has happened.

    Dense, fact filled, sober analysis and prescription

    Mearsheimer brilliantly probes the subtle and nuanced dimensions of modern foreign policy, at high level commensurate with his decades of scholarship, accessible to any curious reader.

    In contrast to the 500 word essays common in typical popular opeds, Mearsheimer does not try paint US foreign policies in pallet consisting of just black and white, or red and blue. His deep analysis, exposes raw the purist ideologies (which I lean towards) of libertarian isolation, neoconservative intervention, or panglossian liberalism as flawed.

    Though subtle, his well documented analysis is ultimately optimistic, in that his realist prescriptions based on recognizing the inherent nationalism of all peoples as a force greater than liberal democracy or authoritarian communist philosophies. He argue realism will lead to less foreign intervention, less wars, and less suffering.

    Great listen - but pretty dense

    I loved this book but at times it was hard to consume by listening as I had to rewind many times to understand the ideas. But my real criticism is for the performer who should have learned to properly say things like realpolitik before he was allowed to read this book.

    Unusually sound reasoning on foreign policy

    In my view the USA has had foreign policy intervention s since the end of the Cold War that harned both the national interest and the peoples of the countries targeted for intervention and attack. It is refreshing to read a realistic international relations scholar explain just how erroneous is the US liberal hegemony ambition and how much we are, at great expense, harming our own interests.

    A must read for all Americans

    A solid, unpretentious argument for adopting realism in our foreign policy as opposed to liberal hegemony which is actually supported by both political parties. This book will open your eyes to the disastrous results this approach to foreign policy has provided the US and will give you a broader, more reasoned understanding for why Trump was elected in 2016.

    Mr. Mearsheimer is simply a phenomenal thinker/historian with regards to Great Power politics.

    I encourage anyone who is curious about world affairs to read this book.

    Truly great writer, thinker

    Had i not just listened to another of his books, which I finished reading here, it would have been fine. It was highly repetitive.
