In the second half of the twentieth century, the United States engaged in the most ambitious and far-reaching liberal order building the world had yet seen. This liberal international order has been one of the most successful in history in providing security and prosperity to more people.

But in the last decade, the American-led order has been troubled. Some argue that the Bush administration, with its war on terror, invasion of Iraq, and unilateral orientation, undermined this liberal order.

Others argue that we are witnessing the end of the American era. John Ikenberry argues that the crisis that besets the American-led order is a crisis of authority. A political struggle has been ignited over the distribution of roles, rights, and authority within the liberal international order.

But the deeper logic of liberal order remains alive and well. The liberal international order has encountered crises in the past and evolved as a result. Tough-minded yet visionary and optimistic, this inspirational volume should become required reading for all those tasked with the great responsibility of steering us to safety through the very choppy international waters into which we are now heading. The marriage of power and principle in the United States has been central to the emergence of the liberal order, but Ikenberry shows that it is also corrosive of that order.

Summer Reading: Ikenberry’s Liberal Leviathan

Jeffrey A. Liberal Leviathan is a sequel. That book, After Victory , provocatively argued that the United States, as progenitor of the contemporary international system, could never effectively remove itself from the system it largely spawned after Having vanquished its major ideological threat during the Cold War and having long been motivated by the universality of its own ideology, American leaders would not, and more importantly could not, employ their power contrary to the rule of law and the pressure of international norms.

John Ikenberry Princeton, N. Liberal Leviathan is a monumental work of political science that will stand for many years as a canonical statement on a topic—U. The book masterfully draws on history, advances international relations theory, and illuminates foreign policy choices of the past, present, and future. It also makes important contributions to the general theory of international orders the circumstances, forces, and processes that shape their rise and fall , and of how the liberal international order differs from previous international orders and from the orders advanced by its rivals in the course of its rise. Across the twentieth century, and particularly after World War II, the United States pursued a foreign policy that played a central role in the creation of an international order based on rules, the consent of the governed, and capitalist economic expansion. While certainly not encompassing all the states of the global international system, this liberal international order has been immensely successful in advancing peace, prosperity, and freedom, to the great benefit of much of humankind. Ikenberry argues that the United States undertook this endeavor on the basis of its national interest, and often successfully used its power to build this order.
