America is at a strategic crossroads. As the world’s lone superpower, we face savage hostility, at home and abroad, from critics furious over our power and success—and their own failure. Should we retreat from the struggle for human freedom to please religious extremists, decayed European powers, and an irresponsible global media?
Absolutely not, according to Ralph Peters, a strategist with an unrivaled record of predicting future threats. America’s heroic past should make us proud, but we should embrace the possibility of an even greater future. New glory will augment the old in the years ahead—if our leaders make the right decisions today.
In this sweeping, eye-opening book, Peters delivers an insider’s critique of our intelligence system and our overstretched military before describing an innovative strategy befitting the greatest (and most virtuous) power in history.
