Restoring the Balance

The George W. Bush administration put forward a distinct model for ending autocratic regimes and establishing democratic governments in nation-states. However, these same policies are not likely to work for the challenges that the Obama administration is likely to encounter. This book brings together experts on Middle East foreign relations to offer policy recommendations for the new administration. They identify areas in which conflicts are likely to arise and make suggestions on how these conflicts may be diffused and problems solved in ways that are satisfactory to the United States and resulting in a more peaceful and stable Middle East region. Topics of discussion include the evolving strategy in Iraq, nuclear proliferation in the Middle East, counterterrorism, and the Arab-Israeli conflict.
