Summary
"Seeing the Elephant: The U.S. Role in Global Security, an intellectual history of U.S. national security thinking since the fall of the Soviet Union, is an attempt to see the evolving international security system and America's role in it through the eyes of more than 50 perceptive authors who have analyzed key aspects of the unfolding post-Cold War drama." "Its premise is that, like the blind men in the Buddhist fable who each feels a different part of an elephant, these authors and their assessments, taken together, can give us a better view of where the world is headed."--BOOK JACKET
