Description: In On Being a Superpower, Seymour Deitchman addresses the kind of theoretical situations that keep U.S. international security experts awake at night. What would the United States do, Deitchman asks, if, in the Middle East, the House of Saud falls prey to Islamic fundamentalists who demand that American forces depart their Saudi Arabian bases? How would our government react to a Chinese invasion of Taiwan, undertaken in response to U.S. support for Taiwanese democracy? If a Central American drug cartel somehow gained de facto power over the smuggling lynchpin of the Panama Canal, what would the United States do? Deitchman examines these and other scenarios, details the likely U.S. response, then explains why the U.S. would act in such a manner, based on our society's current moral concerns, political rhetoric, and overall world view. While most international strategists conjure up doctrine, military history, and international theory from the past to explain the present, Deitchman focuses on the changing attitudes of today.
