Redefining the National Interest

(p.137) 5 Redefining the National Interest
The Paradox of American Power

Joseph S. Nye (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The issues raised in the foregoing chapters demonstrate the importance, insufficiently appreciated by the current administration of President George. W. Bush, of defining the U.S. national interest in a manner, which addresses the wider concerns of world order and stability, and which aims to defend the humanitarian values on which such order and stability depend. It is necessary for U.S. foreign policy to recalibrate its sense of priorities, and to recognize that there is a U.S. interest in preserving the “public good” of a stable international social and economic order.
