Epochal wars are fought and then settlements reached that legitimate changes in the structure and form of the state. Bobbitt explains how in this epoch fascism,communism and liberal democracy competed. Bobbitt focuses on the intervention in Libya, the response to Iran's nuclear programs and the dilemmas they pose for the Obama administration. (#21989)
