This monograph is the fifth in The Nixon Center’s series of annualstrategic assessments produced by Peter W. Rodman, our Director of NationalSecurity Programs. Unlike his most recent papers in this series, which focusedon particular strategic issues (China, Russia, Europe), this one surveysAmerica’s global position and the challenges to it. It is a broad yet conciseexamination of American strategy and an inquiry into the American nationalinterest in today’s new post-Cold War conditions. It is also a valuablecontribution to our national debate on foreign policy. Having served in keyforeign policy positions under four presidents – with responsibilities that gavehim a strategist’s global perspective – Peter Rodman is particularly well-qualified to undertake this task.Forthcoming Nixon Center monographs will examine problems noless central to American foreign policy. This fall, we will release a newmonograph by Geoffrey Kemp, Director of Regional Strategic Programs,reevaluating American policy in the Caspian Basin and the Middle East. InDecember, China Studies Director David M. Lampton and Center AssistantDirector Greg May will complete a study assessing the potential for a newarms race in East Asia and proposing U.S. policies to avoid that outcomewhile ensuring the defense of vital American interests in the region.Dimitri K.
