Between War and Peace: Lessons from Afghanistan to Iraq

by

Between War and Peace: Lessons from Afghanistan to Iraq Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his acclaimed collection An Autumn of War, the scholar and military historian Victor Davis Hanson expressed powerful and provocative views of September 11 and the ensuing war in Afghanistan. Now, in these challenging new essays, he examines the worlds ongoing war on terrorism, from America to Iraq, from Europe to Israel, and beyond.

In direct language, Hanson portrays an America making progress against Islamic fundamentalism but hampered by the self-hatred of elite academics at home and the cynical self-interest of allies abroad. He sees a new and urgent struggle of evil against good, one that can fail only if “we convince ourselves that our enemies fight because of something we, rather than they, did.”

Whether its a clear-cut defense of Israel as a secular democracy, a denunciation of how the U.N. undermines the U.S., a plea to drastically alter our alliance with Saudi Arabia, or a perception that postwar Iraq is reaching a dangerous tipping point, Hansons arguments have the shock of candor and the fire of conviction.

Review:

"These 39 previously published essays...mostly focus on broad-brush denunciations of Europeans, Arabs, the U.N. and Muslims....Will the presence of U.S. soldiers insure that things go right this time? Hanson thinks so, but his reasons are not spelled out." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

From the acclaimed author of 'An Autumn of War' - a timely new exploration of the states of America and the world in the battle against terrorism.
