From Publishers Weekly:

Although the book reads somewhat like campaign literature for his own political aspirations, the views on foreign policy in these "letters" by the head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and co-chair of its Arms Control Observer group, merits the attention of presidential contenders and the electorate. Warning against a growing gap between our objectives and capacities, Lugar stresses that defined priorities based on national consensus must govern our foreign commitments. He further maintains that the president should respect the War Powers Resolution and routinely consult congressional leaders on major foreign-policy matters; secrecy, he alleges, will undermine presidential credibility. Among Reagan administration foreign-affairs successes and mistakes, Lugar cites the encouraging movement toward democracy in Guatemala and the Philippines whose election of Cory Aquino the president championed, but the author deplores what he terms the Nicaraguan "quagmire." Lugar concludes with ethical admonitions, the foremost of which is: tell the truth. Major ad/promo.

From Library Journal:

Senator Lugar, member and former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, assesses recent U.S. foreign policy and his suggestions for future policy formulation. Writing a series of letters to the president taking office in January 1989, Lugar focuses special attention on Central America, South Africa, and the Philippines, including chapters on general foreign policy goals as well. The chapters dealing with the Philippines, where Lugar was an official observer during the critical 1986 elections, are of particular interest. A well-informed and intelligent assessment of foreign policy concerns.Scott Wright, Coll. of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minn.
