What Bush Wants: The Remaking of the World
Éditions de La Martinière
This unprecedented book proves many of our assumptions wrong, not the least of which is our impression that all French are against United States policy. Exasperated by his countrymen’s reactionary anti-Americanism, Guy Millière, a world-class economist and politico, examines American neo-conservatism, finding it rich in ideas and far more innovative than is generally thought. Choosing ten geopolitical strategic zones (Washington, London, Saint-Petersburg, Istanbul, Jerusalem, Hong Kong, New Delhi, Tokyo, Buenos Aires and Cape Town), he clarifies the White House’s strategic vision for the next century. In addition, he gives voice to those participating actively in Bush’s plan: Paul Wolfowitz, Daniel Pipes, William Kristol, and Robert Kaplan to name a few. A compelling analysis of U.S. foreign policy that has the narrative force of a novel, What Bush Wants should be required reading for those – French, American or otherwise – who seek to better understand America’s role in our world’s future.
Guy Millière : An economist and political historian, Guy Millière shares his time teaching in both French and American universities. He has taken part in several American think tanks, including those at The American Enterprise Institute and The Hoover Institution.
