Review: From the time he left office in disgrace to his death in 1994, Richard Nixon sought to rehabilitate his image and be remembered as one of his century's great statesmen. To that end, he wrote several books in which he expounded upon his ideas concerning governance and statecraft. Beyond Peace is the last of these volumes, addressing the need for America to meet the challenges of a geopolitical scene transformed by the collapse of the Communist bloc.
What should America's role in the international political arena be? What are the most pressing crises at home, and why has the end of the Cold War only made them worse? These are the questions that Nixon addresses not only with policy suggestions, but with ruminations about the spiritual hunger which many of us endure and which he believed neither the religious right nor its liberal counterparts were successfully abating. Although his thoughts are broad to the point of scatteredness at times, Beyond Peace nevertheless provides a useful insight into the political philosophy that shaped his life's actions.
