Richard N. Haass on “A World in Disarray: American Foreign Policy and the Crisis of the Old Order”

January 12, 2018

"These are no ordinary times. It will not be business as usual in a world of disarray; as a result, it cannot be foreign policy as usual," writes Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations. His latest book, A World in Disarray: American Foreign Policy and the Crisis of the Old Order is a timely examination of a world increasingly defined by disorder. In three parts, the book contemplates the history of world order from the rise of the modern state system to the end of the Cold War; accounts for the momentous shifts in the last quarter century to shed light on the current state of affairs, and outlines specific steps to tackle the many challenges ahead.
