Security First: For a Muscular, Moral Foreign Policy
The author, a well-known leftist scholar, noted in particular for his development of communitarian concepts, is a professor of international relations at The George Washington University. He has published some 30 books in his field.
In this latest volume, he discourses at length on the necessity for a shift in America’s focus, a change in national security policy, away from the internationalist outlook that impelled the nation into the Iraq War. Professor Etzioni foresees the formation of a world grouping of some ten “core” nations in addition to the United States with a vital, key role in stopping nuclear arms proliferation. Hence his Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI) as one of his specific conceptual offerings.
