This chapter discusses the possible new conception of foreign policy by the administration of Bill Clinton during the late 1990s. The approach worked well in certain instances, but during the next four years the liabilities of a nuanced strategy were exposed. The discussion highlights the four basic problems with Clinton's vision of foreign policy, which illustrated the dangers of a flexible approach to foreign policy.
