There is no doubt that President George W. Bush and his administration have transformed US foreign policy and reshaped global international relations in a very profound way. Many American commentators continue to talk about 9/11 as the day the world changed, but increasingly analysts around the world are concluding that more important than 9/11 have been the ideas that the Bush leadership brought into office in January 2001.Confronting the Bush Doctrineis the first book to take on the vitally important task of analyzing how the Asia Pacific region sees and evaluates what the United States is doing. With contributions from an outstanding group of scholars, many of whom are based in the region, this book will prove to be an invaluable resource to all students and scholars of American and Asian politics.
Peter Van Nessis a Visiting Fellow in the Contemporary China Centre and lectures in the Department of International Relations at the Australian National University.Melvin Gurtovis Professor of Political Science and International Studies at Portland State University, USA.
