"Like a good doctor, Ted Galen Carpenter has spent his whole career trying to cure America of its `foreign policy hypochondria.' Smart Power brings together some of his sharpest diagnoses of our unhealthy tendency to cleave to obsolete security commitments, add new ones willy-nilly, and muck about in intractable conflicts in which we have no real interest. Carpenter's essays constitute strong medicine, but that is precisely what our country needs in these fevered days!"

"This is a timely collection of Ted Galen Carpenter's timeless advice on America's foreign policy. Instead of claiming the impossible role of global security manager, America should recognize the limits of its interests and resources, he argues, and return home to fulfill freedom's opportunities."
