Liberty's Best Hope challenges America to reclaim its role as a global leader and purveyor of freedom. Dr. Holmes examines not only the threats we face throughout the world, but the ideological battles being waged on the home front — and he offers practical solutions for policymakers. He surveys the perspectives, ambitions, and behavior of our allies and our enemies. He also examines who truly belongs in each camp and outlines a concrete plan for America's next president to strengthen and reshape our role abroad. President Reagan, he notes, understood that America's emergence as a world leader for freedom, peace, and democracy presents us with a moral imperative to act — not react. Only by asserting America's leadership on the global stage, Dr. Holmes argues in Liberty's Best Hope, can freedom hope to live on.
