In Retreat

In Retreat

America's Withdrawal from the Middle East

Author: Russell A. Berman
ISBN: 978-0-8179-1725-8
Publication Date: 5/1/2014

Russell A. Berman explains how the US withdrawal from the Middle East could have long-term consequences, as other forces come forward to fill the gap. He details how the retreat began and how the reduction of the US commitment has, in turn, set off a wave of repercussions. Berman analyzes what motivates such a retreat, how much it is a choice of the Obama administration, and how much it is rooted in US cultural leanings that could outlast the administration. In Retreat warns not only about changing evaluations about this specific corner of the globe but also about predispositions to retreat from politics altogether, from the burden of leadership, and from the advocacy for democracy.
