What road did Americans travel to reach global preeminence? Taking the long historical view, Hunt demonstrates that wealth, confidence, and leadership were key elements to America's ascent. In an analytic narrative that illuminates the past rather than indulges in political triumphalism, he provides crucial insights into the country's problematic place in the world today. Hunt examines how the United States remade great power relations, fashioned limits for the third world, and shaped our current international economic and cultural order. He concludes by addressing current issues, such as how durable American power really is and what options remain for America's future.
