Editorial Reviews:
Review:
"Well-written and lucid....Excellent, as is Halberstam's custom, and instructive for those seeking to understand geopolitical realities."

Kirkus, 07/01/2001

Review:
"If bureaucracy has a poet, his name is Halberstam. Taken alone, the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department, the Congress all are institutions of bewildering complexity. No one has ever done a better job of mapping how policy gets made in the interplay of these fiefdoms. Or perhaps I should say, how policy gets lost.... Halberstam understands that the machinery is driven by personality as much as by events or policy. His portraits of the people who shaped military policy during the last decade give what might have been a dry study the flavor and drive of well-written history."

Mark Bowden, Washington Post Book World, 09/23/2001
