The Restoration of Politics
Interrogating History about a Civilization in Crisis
In this insightful analysis of the past, present, and future of American foreign policy, one of the world's most distinguished scholars of international relations examines history to offer new challenges and opportunities to those who determine America's role in international affairs. George Liska observes that the current state of American domestic politics, particularly the conservative revolt against the welfare state and growing demands for less government, offers a meaningful and pragmatic prescription for America's future participation in global relations. At a time when Americans are reexamining their proper role in international affairs, The Restoration of Politics argues that with the end of the Cold War there is a diminished need for American intervention abroad.

George Liska is one of the most profound and original thinkers in the field. No one else combines such a grasp of history and theory. No one else digs deeper.--Charles William Maynes, editor, Foreign Policy
