About this title

Synopsis:

Since World War II, Americans have been the world’s true revolutionaries, expanding the frontiers of human liberty by fighting and winning the cold war. But now that we’re fighting the much more complicated war on terror, many observers wonder if our glory days are behind us.

Ralph Peters, a controversial strategist and respected expert on military and intelligence issues, argues that the United States is actually poised for even greater success in the twenty-first century—if our leaders make the right decisions about the opportunities and dangers we face today. In New Glory, he offers a strategic tour of the globe’s hot spots and how we should respond to the challenges they pose.

Peters criticizes the Bush administration for over-relying on high technology and defense contractors in the Iraq war and for not committing enough troops and being too afraid of casualties to do the job properly. He also offers a sharp analysis of what’s wrong with our intelligence system and why the changes proposed by the 9/11 Commission aren’t enough.

He then takes readers far beyond Iraq and the Middle East on a lively tour of other regions—including Latin America, Africa, and deeply troubled Europe—that rarely get serious attention in the media.

Drawing on his twenty-five years of experience in more than sixty countries, Peters shatters the dogmas of both left and right in this manifesto for a much more assertive and visionary U.S. foreign policy.

From the Back Cover:

"Peters has produced a dynamic, intellectually challenging, must-read book...It needs to be in the hands of all policy-makers—and all those who vote for them."
The New York Post

"Peters is an astute and historically informed observer of the world’s cultures and politics, so the vision he offers in New Glory manages to be not just inspiring but also highly realistic."
The National Review

"For all its thunder and lightning, New Glory is a work of optimism, written by an author steeped in history—and theology and geopolitics and even fine art. Academics will dismiss this book. Then Again, Peters has little use for academics, and says so."
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch
