Naval War College Review


Norah Schneider


This collection of ten essays focuses on the American government’s foreign policy through three administrations after the fall of the Berlin Wall on 9 November 1989, and also after the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001. Editors Melvyn Leffler and Jeffrey Legro examine these events from the perspec- tives of both the policy makers who were active in Presidents George H. W. Bush’s, Bill Clinton’s, and George W. Bush’s administrations and scholars who have analyzed the government’s actions. Government response to these events provides strong examples of how the United States reacts in times of uncertainty.
