9780061436956: America: Our Next Chapter: Tough Questions, Straight Answers

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has long been admired for his honesty, integrity, and commonsense approach to the challenges of our times. The Los Angeles Times has praised his "bold positions on foreign policy and national security" and wondered, "What's not to like?" In America: Our Next Chapter, Nebraska-born Hagel offers a hard-hitting examination of the state of our nation and provides substantial, meaningful proposals that can guide America back onto the right path.

Basing his suggestions on thorough research and careful thought, as well as on personal insight from his years as a political insider, successful businessman, and decorated war hero, he discusses domestic issues such as control of U.S. debt and confronts foreign policy problems, including China's growing economy and Iran's aggressive political, ideological, and nuclear stances. Always true to the beliefs instilled in him during his childhood on the prairie, he speaks passionately about service—to one's country and to one's fellow citizens—as the path toward a renewed America.

A staunch Republican yet a "hero to liberals" (Time), Secretary Hagel asks the tough questions and delivers straight answers to America's most pressing problems. America: Our Next Chapter is a serious, honest, and ultimately optimistic look at our nation's future, from an American original.

About the Author:

Chuck Hagel served two terms in the U.S. Senate and was sworn in as the 24th Secretary of Defense on February 27, 2013, becoming the first enlisted combat veteran to lead the Department of Defense. Hagel and his brother Tom served side by side in Vietnam in 1968 as infantry squad leaders with the U.S. Army's 9th Division. He earned many military decorations and honors, including two Purple Hearts. A fourth-generation Nebraskan, Secretary Hagel is a graduate of the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Hagel and his wife, Lilibet, have two children.

Review:

“Chuck Hagel is a leader and passionate advocate of dialogue and multilateral engagement, and his book describes in clear terms why the world needs enlightened American leadership. His vivid examination of American politics provides a rationale for future policy.” (Kofi A. Annan)

“Senator Hagel is a plain spoken man from the heartland with a big vision for where America needs to go next - and how we can all help. This is a book for people who care about their country.” (Tom Brokaw)

“America The Next Chapter” is a powerful combination of personal reminiscence and public policy prescription. Hagel is an authentic and courageous voice--a principled Republican moderate in the finest traditional sense. (Susan Eisenhower)

“A leader and passionate advocate of dialogue and multilateral engagement, Chuck Hagel’s book describes in clear terms why the world needs enlightened American leadership. His vivid examination of American politics provides a rationale for future policy.” (Kofi A. Annan, UN Secretary-General (1997-2006))

“[Chuck Hagel’s] is a true American voice, straight forward, pragmatic, full of the values that have made this country great. His book traces a course for a... more hopeful future for the country; it sets standards for the next generation to follow. A must read.” (James D. Wolfensohn, President of the World Bank 1995-2005)

“ He writes with insight, expertise, authority and with the credentials that come from his dedicated service in war and peace. . . . . A fast, solid worthwhile read.” (Colin L. Powell)

“Well-reasoned and timely . . . His approach should be required reading for anyone who cares about the diminishing ability of our elected officials to seek common ground—and people everywhere interested in an inspirational American life.” (Alan Greenspan)

“This forthright and surprisingly blunt book... details his public life as a United States senator and gives him an opportunity to ask some tough questions, and to make some tough judgments. Hagel has made his mark in the U.S. Senate by being his own man, a man above partisanship.” (Journal Star Review)
