In America a small group of thinkers, known as ‘neoconservatives’ stands accused of hijacking the nation’s foreign policy, converting it from a multilateralist nation that relies on persuasion into a unilateralist country relying exclusively on military power to achieve its aim of installing pro-American, democratic regimes in the Middle East and, eventually, in Africa and other unstable regions of the world. Their critics call the neo-cons ‘democratic imperialists’ in pursuit of unachievable goals.

This book contains classic and original neoconservative writing to provide the first collection for British readers of ideas that are exerting enormous influence on American foreign and defence policy and have caused such a violent reaction among those who disagree. It contains freshly commissioned pieces by: defenseTony Blair; Robert Kagan; Condoleezza Rice; George Will; Jeane Kirkpatrick; Adam Wolfson; Irving Kristol; William Kristol; Margaret Thatcher; David Brooks; Max Boot; George L. Kelling; Kenneth Weinstein; João Carlos Espada; James Q. Wilson; Karlyn Bowman and Michael Gove.
