A World in Disarray

American Foreign Policy and the Crisis of the Old Order


World Order 2.0

President of the Council on Foreign Relations and global political veteran Richard Haass offers an overview of current world politics and warns of destabilizing forces.

President of the Council on Foreign Relations Richard Haass served as a senior Middle East adviser to President George H.W. Bush and as a director under Secretary of State Colin Powell. He analyzes the current chaotic global order – in which the old rules of engagement and diplomacy no longer apply – and details a geopolitical world gone adrift.

The New York Times called this “a valuable primer on foreign policy…that concerned citizens of all political persuasions — not to mention the president and his advisers – could benefit from reading.” Robert M. Gates, the former secretary of defense under presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, believes Haass’s book is “a must-read for the new American president and all who are concerned by the state of the world and the prospect of things getting worse.”
