Summary
  • "In On Being a Superpower, Sy Deitchman addresses 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 U.S. forces depart their Saudi Arabian bases? How would the U.S. 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, discusses a likely U.S. response, and 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."--Jacket
