“American Alone: The Neo-Conservatives and the Global Order

American foreign policy since 9/11 has been driven by an ideology that reflects the worldview of a group of advisors identified as the Neo-Conservatives. From the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian battle, their worldview has left a tremendous impact on American foreign policy. They have redefined America’s traditional role in the world as well as its historical relations with its European allies. Their policies have also established a very controversial role for America, one that has brought much world criticism relative to our newly defined leadership responsibilities for the world. Mr. Clarke, as a European foreign policy expert, has a unique perspective on what this shift in policy has had on America, its allies and world security including Terrorism.

Mr. Clarke is a former career diplomat in the British Diplomatic Service for which he worked from 1972-1992. His foreign assignments included Germany, Zimbabwe, and the United States. His final diplomatic rank was Counselor at the British Embassy in Washington DC. In London he worked on issues relating to China, South Africa, and Central America. His particular areas of expertise are political, economic, and development issues relating to Europe (particularly the future of European security), the United States, sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, and East Asia.

Mr. Clarke’s latest book (co-authored with Stefan Halper) is America Alone: The Neo-Conservatives and the Global Order (Cambridge University Press, June 2004).
