Summary

America's Role in Nation-Building is a nearly 50-year review of U.S. efforts to transform defeated and broken enemies into democratic and prosperous allies. The authors identify key determinants of success in terms of democratization and the creation of vibrant economies. Seven case studies are examined: Germany, Japan, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan.

The authors conclude that rebuilding Iraq will be difficult but possible, and use historical perspective to illuminate today's headlines.
