Lee Smith analyzes the current US administration's stance on Syria, questioning whether it will build the foundations of a new Middle East or usher in an era of instability that will affect the entire world. The author contends that the many apparent shifts in the administration's Syria policy were part of a messaging campaign intended to camouflage President Obama's determination to stay out of the Syrian conflict. Smith concludes that the next White House will have to deal with the region that this one will hand off to it, containing more violence, betrayed allies, emboldened adversaries, and Iran almost on the verge of a nuclear breakout that will further destabilize a vital strategic region.

  • Foreword / Victor Davis Hanson
  • Introduction: The Triumph of Democracy and the Antidemocratic Tradition
  • 1. The Monitory Failures of Athenian Democracy
  • 2. The Antidemocratic Tradition and the American Founding
  • 3. Democracy and Leviathan
  • Conclusion: Restoring Limited Government.
By democracy we usually mean a government comprising popular rule, individual human rights and freedom, and a free-market economy. Yet the flaws in traditional Athenian democracy can instruct us on the weaknesses of that first element of modern democracies shared with Athens: rule by all citizens equally. In Democracy's Dangers & Discontents, Bruce Thornton discusses those criticisms first aired by ancient critics of Athenian democracy, then traces the historical process by which the Republic of the founders has evolved into something similar to ancient democracy, and finally argues for the relevance of those critiques to contemporary American policy.

  • In retreat: America's withdrawal from the Middle East
  • Retreat from politics
  • Retreat from leadership
  • Retreat from democracy.
"Russell A. Berman explains how the US withdrawal from the Middle East could have long-term consequences, as other forces come forward to fill the gap. He details how the retreat began and how the reduction of the US commitment has, in turn, set off a wave of repercussions. Berman analyzes what motivates such a retreat, how much it is a choice of the Obama administration, and how much it is rooted in US cultural leanings that could outlast the administration. In Retreat warns not only about changing evaluations about this specific corner of the globe but also about predispositions to retreat from politics altogether, from the burden of leadership, and from the advocacy for democracy." -- Publisher's description.

  • Israel and the Arab turmoil
  • The outbreak of the "Arab Spring"
  • Egypt's domestic crisis
  • The Syrian Civil War
  • Repercussions for Lebanon
  • Ramifications for the Palestinian arena
  • Turkey's regional role
  • A new regional order.
"Itamar Rabinovich examines how Israel is facing a new and changing regional order in the Middle East, from the ramifications of the Arab Spring to a receding US role and beyond. The author looks specifically at Israel's evolving relationships with Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, and the Palestinians. He asserts that, although some new developments pose threats to Israel's national security and diplomatic position, Israel could take advantage of some of those changes to become a more active and better integrated player in the region's politics. For this to happen, he concludes, Israel should take advantage of the massive effort invested by US Secretary of State John Kerry to bring about an Israeli-Palestinian final status agreement." -- Publisher's description.
