This thought-provoking and timely book analyses America’s unprecedented power within the international arenas of politics, economics, demographics, education, science, and culture, arguing that the major threat to this unique empire is not a rising rival power centre but ineffective U.S. leadership.

Former director of the National Security Agency (1985–1988), he is also the author of The Collapse of the Soviet Military and Fixing Intelligence: For a More Secure America, both available in paperback from Yale University Press.
