The United States emerged from the cold war with unprecedented power and prestige but managed to squander both in a remarkably short time. In this scholarly yet highly opinionated book, former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski examines how this came to be by offering a reasoned but unsparing assessment of the last three presidential administrations' foreign policy.

The New York Times - Michiko Kakutani

In his compelling new book, Second Chance: Three Presidents and the Crisis of American Superpower, Mr. Brzezinski not only assesses the short- and long-term fallout of the Iraq war, but also puts that grim situation in perspective with the tumultuous global changes that have taken place in the last two decades. He dispassionately analyzes American foreign policy as conducted by the last three presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George H. W. Bush and he gives the reader a sobering analysis of where these leaders cumulative decisions have left the United States as it now searches for an exit strategy from Iraq, faces potentially explosive situations in Iran and North Korea and copes with an increasingly alienated Europe and an increasingly assertive China.
