A renowned scholar argues that liberal hegemony—the policy America has pursued since the Cold War ended—is doomed to fail Named a Financial Times Best Book of 2018 “Idealists as well as realists need to read this systematic tour de force.”—Robert D. Kaplan, author of The Return of Marco Polo’s World It is widely believed in the West that the United States should spread liberal democracy across the world, foster an open international economy, and build international institutions. The policy of remaking the world in America’s image is supposed to protect human rights, promote peace, and make the world safe for democracy. But this is not what has happened. Instead, the United States has become a highly militarized state fighting wars that undermine peace, harm human rights, and threaten liberal values at home. In this major statement, the renowned international-relations scholar John Mearsheimer argues that liberal hegemony—the foreign policy pursued by the United States since the Cold War ended—is doomed to fail. It makes far more sense, he maintains, for Washington to adopt a more restrained foreign policy based on a sound understanding of how nationalism and realism constrain great powers abroad. The Great Delusion is a lucid and compelling work of the first importance for scholars, policymakers, and everyone interested in the future of American foreign policy.

The Great Delusion explores the gap that persists between the Zionist ambition to implement its project among the neighboring Arab world peacefully, achieving recognition and acceptance amicably, and the reality of a century-old permanent state of war and hostility towards Jews, Zionism, and Israel, which has been cultivated among the Arab populace. In recent decades, and especially since President Donald Trump’s administration, American mediation has helped break that wall of enmity, at least on the governmental level. But on emotional and popular levels, the long years of anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli propaganda seem much more difficult to eradicate. This volume discusses the frustration on the part of Israel to attain a permanent peace with the Arab world.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The idea of liberal hegemony is that a state aims to turn as many countries as possible into liberal democracies, while also promoting an open international economy and building international institutions. However, this is rarely realistic. #2 The liberal state is constantly trying to spread democracy around the world, but this also leads to illiberalism at home. The liberal state will not achieve its goals, and its failure will inevitably come with huge costs. #3 The structure of the international system is anarchic, not hierarchic, which means that liberalism cannot work in international politics. Countries thus have little choice but to act according to balance-of-power logic if they hope to survive. #4 The American foreign policy establishment embraced the mission of spreading liberalism around the world. They believed that this would eventually bring an end to balance-of-power politics, and they thought that people would become bored with it all.

Notable not only for its comprehensiveness but also for its inclusion of the Chinese pictograms, this complete text of the *Analects* of the greatest philosopher of Chinese history is a must-own volume for any student of Confucius (551Bi479 Be. From the disposition of a land's rulers to the value of prayer, the thoughts of Confucius have powerfully shaped the moral life and political structures of Asian nations, and influenced the direction of the Western world as well. Here, Legge offers an enlightening introduction to the *Analects,* copious notes that place the sayings in cultural context, and much more assistance for the lay reader in understanding the depth of Confucius' wisdom. This three-in-one volume, originally published in this form in 1893, also includes *The Great Learning,* the Confucian illustration of illustrious virtue, and *The Doctrine of the Mean,* the thinker's explication of the path of duty. Scottish scholar JAMES LEGGE (1815-1897) was the first professor of Chinese language and literature at Oxford University, serving from 1876 to 1897. Among his many books are The Life and Teaching of Confucius (1867), The Religions of China (1880), and the 50-volume Sacred Books of the East (1879-1891).

The story of the "great supper" in Luke 14:16-24 is one of the most instructive of all the parables. It was originally spoken by Christ with special reference to the Jews, and represented their rejection of the Gospel and the subsequent calling of the Gentiles. But it also teaches us what God has done and is still doing in pursuance of His gracious designs in regard to this guilty and perishing world. As such, this parable provides a clear and beautiful illustration of the so-called "doctrines of grace," more commonly known as "Calvinism."--Http://www.solafidepublishers.com.
