ABOUT DAVID ROTHKOPF & "NATIONAL INSECURITY":
"An inside look at how foreign policy was made under the two presidents since 9/11...the real star of the book, the ubershaper of everything, is this "age of fear" that so warped our institutions and policy priorities. Will it ever go away or will bin Laden be forever the gift that keeps on giving?"
—Thomas L. Friedman, The New York Times
“Many books have been written about America’s response to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks; few are as insightful, as compelling or as useful as National Insecurity.”
"NATIONAL INSECURITY… could lay claim to being the definitive book on how 9/11 affected US foreign policy.."
—Edward Luce, Financial Times
DAVID ROTHKOPF is CEO and editor of Foreign Policy magazine. He recently authored National Insecurity: American Leadership in an Age of Fear. The book is the gripping story of a superpower in crisis, seeking to adapt to a rapidly changing world, sometimes showing inspiring resilience but often undone by the human flaws of those at the top, the mismanagement of its own system, the temptation to concentrate too much power within the hands of too few in the White House itself, and an unwillingness to draw the right lessons from the recent past.
His previous book, Power, Inc.: The Epic Rivalry Between Big Business and Government and the Reckoning that Lies Ahead, traces the changing relationship between public and private power and looks at the implications of the rise of great private actors and the weakening of many states.
