Published in 1992, this would be the last book that President Richard Nixon released before his untimely death in 1994. This book examines the political implication of a post-soviet world order. It implores the current political leaders to “seize the moment” in history. It was at odds with the post-Cold War doctrine of George Bush, which emphasized stability. Nixon advocated for democracy in all corners of the globe, sometimes at the expense of stability.
