Summary
"Dominance by Design explores the critical ways in which technological superiority has undergirded U.S. policies of unilateralism, preemption, and interventionism in foreign affairs while raising us from an impoverished frontier nation to a global power. Challenging the long-held assumptions and imperatives that sustain the belief in the civilizing mission, Adas gives us an essential guide to America's past and present role in the world as well as cautionary lessons for the future."--BOOK JACKET
