By The Hon. James A. Baker III. Published 1998. ISBN
From his background as Secretary of the Treasury and Secretary of State, James Baker gives an insight into the economic and political challenges confronting the United States. At the time of writing the ongoing financial turmoil in emerging markets and the crisis over Iraqi compliance with United Nations resolutions made this a very relevant discussion. However it is also one that can be taken into the new millennium as the United States strives to fulfil its role as world leader.
