Strategic Impasse : Social Origins of Geopolitical Disarray, Paperback / softback Book

Strategic Impasse : Social Origins of Geopolitical Disarray Paperback / softback


"Damned if you do; damned if you don't" voices the strategic impasse the USA finds itself in today.

Liberal interventionism and globalization-the two pillars of the international system-seem not to work.

Explaining the inability of Western powers to enact wise initiatives, Corradi explores the de-coupling of political systems: we are connected with each other but disconnected from policy makers.

The paradox of increased connectivity and collective disengagement sets a perverse dynamic between publics and elites, with a serious impact on world affairs.

Corradi analyzes the social bases of present dilemmas and how incipient decline can be managed, and paralysis overcome.
