Warrior Politics
By

Rating
In Warrior Politics, the esteemed journalist and analyst Robert D. Kaplan explores the wisdom of the ages for answers for today's leaders. While the modern world may seem more complex and dangerous than ever before, Kaplan writes from a deeper historical perspective to reveal how little things actually change. Indeed, as Kaplan shows us, we can look to history's most influential thinkers, who would have understood and known how to navigate today's dangerous political waters. Drawing on the timeless work of Sun Tzu, Thucydides, Machiavelli, Hobbes, among others, Kaplan argues that in a world of unstable states and an uncertain future, it is increasingly imperative to wrest from the past what we need to arm ourselves for the road ahead. Wide-ranging and accessible, Warrior Politics is a bracing book with an increasingly important message that challenges readers to see the world as it is, not as they would like it to be.

Reviews

"There is much to praise in Kaplan's sober realism, his genuine knowledge of the world's danger zones, and his justified contempt for liberal good intentions when they are not backed by steel and will." -The New York Review of Books "Kaplan draws on a rich humanist tradition to shatter the illusion of a collective, post-cold war vision of human progress.... [He] has become the Ayn Rand of international affairs, saying what few dare to say." -New Statesman "The reason I have come to admire Bob Kaplan's little book... is its refusal to apologize for its analogies. This is so refreshing.... What Kaplan is saying-and what Hobbes and Machiavelli and some of the Founders said-was that such realism is in fact more moral than idealism. Idealism in state craft is based on an abdication of responsibility - to govern the world as it is." -Andrew Sullivan "[Kaplan's] comparison of the United States in 2001 with the complacent Roman Empire will be a wake-up call for many readers. His philosophical polemic is well worth reading in these anxious times." -Library Journal
