"For centuries, the balance of power has been the central precept of international politics, so what happens when one country's overwhelming primacy makes restraining alliances seem obsolete? This collection of top-quality essays by premier scholars offers lively debates over alternatives like 'soft balancing' and multilateral institutional constraints. *Primacy and Its Discontents* is ideal for getting students thinking in the classroom."--Jack Snyder, Robert and Renee Belfer Professor of International Relations, Columbia University, author of *Electing to Fight: Why Emerging Democracies Go to War* "U.S. primacy remains of 'prime' importance to the current and future course of international politics. These superb ten essays capture the sources of, disputes about, and reactions to U.S. primacy. An excellent source for courses in international relations and American foreign policy." -- Robert Art , Christian A. Herter Professor of International Relations, Brandeis University
