Review

Michael McFaul is one of America's foremost experts on the promotion of democracy abroad. His new book is a thoughtful and informative study of the role of democracy promotion in U.S. foreign policy, one that makes a sober assessment of the current backlash against democracy and the legacy of the Bush years. (Fukuyama, Francis)

Promoting democracy and human rights is not just the right thing to do. For America it is the smart thing to do. Mike McFaul—one of our country's best on foreign policy—explains why in Advancing Democracy Abroad. He also shows how, with clear and innovative ideas. Anyone who cares about U.S. foreign policy should read this book. (Madeleine Albright)

If democracy and human rights becomes a priority for the Obama administration, it may be because of the influence in internal debates of Michael McFaul, senior director for Russian and Eurasian affairs on the National Security Council. In his new book McFaul makes an unapologetic case for democracy and takes on the 'renaissance' of realists and their perennial claims about how supporting democracy hurts American interests. For the foreseeable future, American leadership remains indispensable. That leadership, in turn, depends on officials like McFaul who believe that promoting democracy is in the American national interest, and in the interest of people living under dictatorships... (The Weekly Standard)

McFaul offers a spirited defense of democracy promotion as a necessary component of the United States' global strategy. He makes a compelling case that established democracies are unusually reliable partners... (Foreign Affairs)

Michael McFaul takes stock, as an academic, of the achievements and failures of previous US efforts in this area, and makes a strong case for putting democracy promotion back at the heart of U.S. foreign policy.... The analysis is robust and relevant.... McFaul has sounded the wake-up call. (Survival)

This bull's-eye book enhances understanding of the democratic process and sets out in a compelling way ideas about how to advance that process. (George P. Shultz)
