about

Today, even as America asserts itself globally, it lacks a grand strategy to replace "containment of communism." In this short, sharp book, Gary Hart outlines a new grand strategy, one directing America's powers to the achievement of its large purposes. Central to this strategy is the power ofAmerican ideals, what Hart calls "the fourth power." Constitutional liberties, representative government, press freedom--these and other democratic principles, attractive to peoples worldwide, constitute a resource that may prove as important to national security and the national interest in thisdangerous new century as traditional military, economic and political might. A bracing vision of an America responsive to a full spectrum of global challenges, The Fourth Power calls for a deeper understanding both of the threats we face and the profound strengths at our disposal to fight them.

Editorial Reviews

"Gary Hart as a senator, presidential candidate, citizen and author has always had an eye on the future. In this age of increasing tension and conflict, challenged by terrorism and anti-Americanism, he helps us understand where we are and where we might go. The remarkable thing about SenatorHart and his book, The Fourth Power, is that he continues to think deeply, beyond politics, about America's role in a new century."--Charlie Rose
