Francis Fukuyama used to regard himself as a 'neocon'. But, attacking the right-wing policymakers he had previously worked with, he argues here that the Bush administration, in the war in Iraq, has wrongly applied the principles of neoconservatism - a philosophy that is vital to the arguments about Iraq, but rarely explored, and whose history he carefully untangles. He explains why the US did not realize how much foreign hostility there would be towards the war, or how difficult reconstruction would be. Showing that there is no established tradition in international relations theory that can help guide American foreign policy today, he then outlines a new approach, in his usual clear and penetrating style.

Review:

It's his critique of neoconservatism and his vision of a better future for US policy overseas that makes this book - almost a mission statement - so thoroughly engaging. (Ed Withcomb Western Daily Express)

An absorbing and thought-provoking book, which repays repeated reading with fresh insights. (Alison Thomas Public Servant)

After the Neocons is the first critique of the Bush administration from the right rather than the left and that in itself elevates it above the rest of the pack. (Haroon Siddique Wood & Vale)

A tough-minded and edifying book. (Michiko Kakutani The Scotsman)

For the British reader ... this short volume will be useful. (Charles Moore Daily Telegraph)

A critique and reformulation of US foreign policy from one of the world's leading thinkers. (Fred Rhodes)

Fukuyama remains as prominent as ever. (Edward Luce FT Magazine)

Mr Fukuyama's critique of the mistakes that have been made is a powerful one. (Economist)

Elegant, honest, persuasive ... he attacks his former academic allies and friends [...] with a relentless and awesome force. (Harry Reid The Glasgow Herald)

Thoroughly worthwhile ... [the book] will give many thoughtful people a sensible path forward. (Douglas Hurd Spectator)
