Allies, Adversaries & Enemies: America’s Increasingly Complex Alliances

FDD Press

This volume examines the growing problem of American allies that simultaneously act as Washington’s adversaries or even enemies. This phenomenon, which has markedly grown in recent decades, can be discerned in the U.S.'s bilateral relationships with Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey, all four of which are examined in extended case studies in this volume.
