Summary
  • Is the United States losing a war it does not even know it is fighting? Edward N. Luttwak, the nation's most brilliant and controversial strategist writing today, asserts that we are - and that in the new struggle for economic supremacy, the United States could slide down into the status of a Third World country. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the United States seemed poised to head a "new world order" of peaceful cooperation. But in the central arena of world

In the trenchant style that made his Pentagon and the Art of War a best-seller, Luttwak exposes how ill-prepared we are for the new struggle that will determine the future of America: schools that fail to teach either culture or skills; the disastrous lack of savings and investment; the widening gap between elite and mass incomes; the increasing paralysis of unrestrained legalism

Offering forceful policy prescriptions, Luttwak shows how we can reverse decline to prosper in the global marketplace. At the same time, he demolishes the myth of free trade, arguing that "globalization" can and should be controlled, instead of allowing it to drive non-elite
  • Americans into poverty. While The Endangered American Dream is bound to be controversial, it is a clarion call to rally the country for the new global struggle for economic supremacy
