Bestselling author and strategist Ian Bremmer argues that Washington’s directionless foreign policy has become expensive and dangerous. Since the end of the Cold War, the U.S. has stumbled from crisis to crisis in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, and Ukraine with no clear strategy.

Bremmer urges us to think more deeply about what sort of role America should play and how it should use its superpower status. He explores three competing options:

· Independent America: America should no longer take responsibility for solving other people’s problems, and instead should lead by example.

· Moneyball America: Washington can’t meet every international challenge, but we can and should focus on opportunities and defend U.S. interests where they’re threatened.

· Indispensable America: Only America can defend the values on which global stability increasingly depends. We will never live in a stable world while others are denied their most basic freedoms.

There are sound arguments for and against each of these choices, but we must choose. Washington can no longer improvise a foreign policy without a lasting commitment to a coherent strategy.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"I promise to tell you exactly what I believe and why I believe it. But this book is about what you think. Whether you’re an American or the proud citizen of another country, I want to know what role you believe the only superpower should play in our world. If you finish this book with a strong opinion, especially if it’s a bit different from the one you have at this moment, and even if it’s the opposite of mine, this book will have served its purpose."
