Pressestimmen"Suporting a declared objective of commitment to independent, nonpartisan research, leading scholars of the Brookings Institution and other reputable research organizations provide a wide-ranging evaluation of the major domestic and foreign policy issues confronting the US over the next decade. This is a splendid collection of articles--balanced, erudite, well documented, and comprehensive in scope. It stands in welcome contrast to the abounding shrillness of debate among the ideologically minded in both major political parties...Highly recommended." --H. I. Liebling, emeritus, Lafayette College, Choice, 1/1/2004 "The collection will be useful for the educated generalist, including perhaps advanced undergraduates and lower-level graduate students." --Greg M. Shaw, Illinois Wesleyan University, Perspectives on Political Science, 1/1/2004 "... a 'quintessential Brookings product.'... Experts from a variety of disciplines intelligently address a broad range of the policy issues, both domestic and foreign, that the United States is facing now and will face in the nest decade... A very useful guide for policy-makers, academics and students... I would recommend it to anyone who would like to be informed by some of the best minds in American policy about the policy issues America is currently facing." --Genevieve Lester, International Institute for Strategic Studies, International Affairs, 5/1/2004
