Product Details


“An incisive, elegantly written, new book about America’s unique role in the world.”
—Tom Friedman, The New York Times

“A devastating riposte to [Trump’s] careless, cynical and destructive approach to diplomacy. . . . [Kagan] is right to detect a crisis of confidence in the democratic world. He sets out his case with characteristic brilliance and conviction.”
The Economist
“[I]t is time to say it: I am a Kaganite. . . . There is no modern author who has taught me more, or changed the way I view the world more, than he has. . . . For identifying and clearly explaining the chief forces driving human history, Bob is brilliant.”
—Michael E. O’Hanlon, Brookings

“[S]o important. . . . In clear and forceful language, [The Jungle Grows Back] makes the case for America continuing its role as the guarantor of a liberal world order.”
—Eli Lake, Bloomberg
“[Kagan] has in many ways become the biographer of American power. . . . He brings to the page a true sense of the stakes involved—not some abstract notion of the ‘rules-based order,’ but the basic security and prosperity of Americans.”
The Jungle Grows Back displays the characteristic Kagan virtues of lucid writing and thought—and a strong sense of history that adds drama and sweep to his argument.”
—Gideon Rachman, The Financial Times

“This short book is a valuable read and makes a valiant effort to argue for America’s continued deep engagement in the world. . . . The world order is not natural; it needed to be built and it needs to be carefully maintained.”
Doug Stokes, Quillette
