Spin Wars and Spy Games

Spin Wars & Spy Games analyzes the modern day trajectory of global news networks (GNNs) and their role in policy development and diplomatic functions. Through interviews with dozens of foreign correspondents, editors, policy experts, and academics, Kounalakis looks at how Western transnational journalists have been instrumental to the policymaking community, yet how their practices are endangered by the influx of non-western, state-sponsored GNNs.

State of Disrepair

Kori Schake shows how the deficiencies in focus, education, and programmatic proficiency impede the work of the State Department and suggests how investing in those areas could make the agency significantly more successful at building stable and prosperous democratic governments around the world. She explains why, instead of burdening the US military with yet another inherently civilian function, work should focus on bringing those agencies of the government whose job it is to provide development assistance up to the standard of success that our military has achieved. Schake presents a vision of what a successful State Department should look like and seeks to build support for creating it—a State Department that makes possible the projection of US civilian power as well as US military force.

The Struggle across the Taiwan Strait

A concise and informative history of how China divided in 1949 into two regimes, why they struggled to achieve the same political goal-reunification of China—and why their struggle today continues in a more complex and dangerous way. The authors detail how the changes brought about by the 2000 election not only intensified the conflict between the regimes but locked both sides into a new contest that increased the probability of war rather than peace.

The Struggle for Mastery in the Fertile Crescent

Fouad Ajami analyzes the struggle for influence along the Fertile Crescent--the stretch of land that runs from Iran's border with Iraq to the Meditterranean--among three of the regional powers who have stepped into the vacuum left by the West: Iran, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia. He explains that, of the three powers competing for influence, Saudi Arabia and Iran are in it for the long haul. Each of those powers has a sense of mission and constituencies that enable them to stick it out and pay the price for a sphere of influence. Ajami details each country's prospects for supremacy and asserts that Iran must ultimately be reckoned to be the strongest.

Syria through Jihadist Eyes

With field notes accumulated in a Syrian environment not generally hospitable to research and inquiry, Nibras Kazimi provides a unique view of the Syrian regime and its base at home, filling a void in our understanding of the intelligence barons and soldiers who run that country. He offers a look at the tactical, propagandists and strategic ingredients required, in jihadist eyes, for a successful jihad—and whether those ingredients are available in Syria.

Syria, Iran, and Hezbollah

Marius Deeb, an Oxford-educated authority on Middle Eastern politics and history, in a detailed sequel to his authoritative Syria’s Terrorist War on Lebanon and the Peace Process, details how the coalition of Syria, Iran, and Hezbollah has used assassination, terrorism, and force against the peaceful and liberal democratic Cedar Revolution, trying to undermine its success in pushing the Syrian Army out of Lebanon and in winning the parliamentary elections of 2005 and 2009.

Taking on Iran

Abraham D. Sofaer argues that US policy toward Iran cannot safely be restricted to a strategy that considers only the two high-risk, costly, and potentially infeasible options of a preventive attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities or containing a nuclear-armed Iran. Instead, the United States should respond forcefully to Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) aggression, enhancing its credibility and increasing the likelihood that Iran will negotiate in earnest. The United States must also be prepared to engage Iran in a disciplined manner, avoiding disabling preconditions and adopting the negotiating practices used successfully by the United States when dealing with the Soviet Union during the 1980s.

Terrorism, the Laws of War, and the Constitution

Terrorism, the Laws of War, and the Constitution examines three enemy combatant cases that represent the leading edge of U.S. efforts to devise legal rules, consistent with American constitutional principles, for waging the global war on terror. The distinguished contributors analyze the crucial questions these cases raise about the balance between national security and civil liberties in wartime and call for a reexamination of the complex connections between the Constitution and international law.

To Make and Keep Peace Among Ourselves and with All Nations

Angelo Codevilla asks,"What does it mean for the United States to be at peace? How is it to be won and preserved in our time?" Noting that our government’s increasingly unlimited powers flow in part from our statesmen’s inability to stay out of wars or win them, he shows that peace among ourselves depends substantially on making peace with other peoples. This study of the principles of statecraft takes us from Greco-Roman times through Christian and early modern thought, concentrating on the various ways in which US statesmen have dealt with the problems of peace and war.

Torn Country

Zeyno Baran examines the intense struggle between Turkey's secularists and Islamists in their most recent battles over their country's destination. Looking into the fate of both Turkey's secularism and its democratic experiment, she shows that, for all the flaws of its political journey, the modern Turkish state has managed to maintain an essential separation between religion and the political realm-a separation that is now in jeopardy.

The worldwide information infrastructure is today increasingly under attack by cyber criminals and terrorists—and the number, cost, and sophistication of the attacks are increasing at alarming rates. With annual damage around the world now measured in billions of U.S. dollars, these attacks threaten the substantial and ever-growing reliance of commerce, governments, and the public upon the new technology to conduct business, carry messages, and process information.
