American Power Since the Berlin Wall
Here's my review for the Register of "American Power After the Berlin Wall," by Thomas Henriksen of Stanford's Hoover Institution. Tom, whom I sometimes use as a source, describes all the interventions of the 1990s, from Panama through Bosnia, underlining the fact that the impulse to intervene didn't begin with George W. Bush. But he thinks the Iraq war was a grave strategic mistake.
