Summary
Analyzes the reasons that the United States shifted its attention after 1989 from the containment of communism to a policy of combating radical Islam, exploring the political and economic tensions that created a foreign policy fueled by Islamophobia. --Publisher's description
Summary
Douglas Little explores the political and cultural turmoil that led U.S. policy makers to shift their attention from containing the "Red Threat" of international communism to combatting the "Green Threat" of radical Islam after 1989. Little analyzes America's confrontation with Islamic extremism through the traditional ideological framework of "us versus them" that has historically pitted the United States against Native Americans, Mexicans, Asian immigrants, Nazis, and the Soviets
