America's Midlife Crisis
is a provocative, thoughtful book ... essential reading for anyone - within or beyond America's borders - who is trying to understand the country's foreign policy and the culture behind it.—Wendy Chamerlin, former US Ambassador to Pakistan and Laos and president, Middle East Institute
In this era of spin and hyperbole, it is refreshing to read such a calm, insightful and cogent analysis of this critical period of our history.
—Harriet Fulbright, president of The J. William & Harriet Fulbright Center
The prism of culture, particularly when focused on changing values, beliefs and attitudes, presents a revealing vehicle for gaining new insights into the American experience. Gary Weaver and Adam Mendelson make the most of this intriguing approach to understanding America's successes and failures - and its prospects.
—Lawrence E. Harrison, Director, Cultural Change Institute, The Fletcher School
, -America's Midlife Crisis
is an important book. It is a book that both Americans and non-Americans alike need to read as they grapple with the massive changes taking place in global geo-politics. Gary Weaver and Adam Mendelson, two leaders in the field, bring profound cultural insights to their analysis of the challenges the United States faces and the choices the country has made. The insights from America's Midlife Crisis
will support each of us in making the myriad decisions that will ultimately lead to the success of our global society.—Nancy J. Adler, S. Bronfman Chair in Management, McGill University, and author of From Boston to Beijing: Managing with a Worldview
This book is a must-read and provides pragmatic insight into America's complex role here at home and abroad. Rigorously researched, this is a truly remarkable contribution, a rare and enormously useful study offering fresh and compelling views of our diverse and racial identities. Splendid scholarship prevails; Weaver and Mendelson discuss how history has helped shape our domestic and international policies, ideals, culture and values. It is a pleasure to read, and I highly recommend it for scholars, students, policy makers and general audiences alike.
—Dr. Jack G. Shaheen, author of GUILTY: Hollywood's Verdict on Arabs after 9/11
