This reader contains a sample of the essays published in the US foreign policy quarterly, The National Interest, during its first four years. The period covered by this volume was a critical one for American foreign policy. It represented a recovery of confidence after the uncertainty and self-laceration of the 1960s and 1970s. But it was also a period when dramatic events in the communist world raised fundamental questions about the ending of the Cold War and about prevailing American foreign policy.
