More than six years into the “war on terror,” the United States and its allies are less safe, our enemies are stronger and more numerous, and the Middle East is dangerously unstable. Philip H. Gordon asserts that we are making little progress towards our ultimate goals because we are fighting the wrong war.
In Winning the Right War, Gordon draws a provocative parallel between the world today and the Cold War, showing how defense, diplomacy, development, and the determination to preserve our values can again be deployed alongside military might to defeat a violent and insidious ideology. Gordon also asks the question “What would victory look like?”—a topic sorely missing from the debate today.
Dr. Philip H. Gordon is Senior Fellow for U.S. Foreign Policy at the Brookings Institution. Prior to Brookings, he was Director for European Affairs at the National Security Council. He has previously held teaching and research posts at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, INSEAD, and the German Society for Foreign Affairs. Dr. Gordon’s many publications have appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, International Herald Tribune, and Foreign Affairs.
