The years 1998 and 1999 were filled with economic events that illustrated the changing and complex agenda for American foreign policy on the eve of the new millennium. In this volume, former senior members of the Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush administrations and a "next generation" of individuals from the private sector describe and analyze the new relationships between economic strategy and national security. Emerging markets are considered, as well as new threats and new opportunities that are changing the concept of American security. This book arises from a two-year project by the Council on Foreign Relations to articulate a "Next Generation" approach to U.S. foreign policy.

Economic Strategy and National Security outlines new concepts—political, economic, and philosophical—for American foreign policy in the twenty-first century. And it seeks to drive home the need for the American people to better understand their role in the new world that is forming.
