America's Half-Century Summary

America's Half-Century: United States Foreign Policy in the Cold War and After by Thomas J. McCormick

Did the United States "win" the Cold War? In its self-congratulatory euphoria, argues Thomas McCormick in this new edition of his highly acclaimed study, America neglected a twenty-year process of political and economic devolution-the real threat to global peace and prosperity. Revised andupdated through 1993, it describes how the end of the Cold War affected the United States's global role as well as suggesting what possibilities lie ahead for a restructured world-system.

America's Half-Century Reviews

Praise for the first edition: "Incisive, eminently readable ...McCormick reminds his readers of the unfashionable truths of our time: American domination of the postwar order, the weakness and conservatism of the Soviet Union, the gratuitousness of the nuclear arms race."--'Nation.' "Original, bold, provocative, important."--Robert J. McMahon, 'Reviews in American History'
