The evaluation of foreign policy is an underdeveloped but essential task of those in the field of FPA (Foreign Policy Analysis). The author’s efforts along this line are laudable.

Graham Slater has produced a book that is equal parts interesting and depressing; one that helps expose some of the pathological assumptions that underlie U.S. foreign policy, and account for its many recent blunders. If only policymakers would read it, and take its recommendations to heart, future tragedies could be avoided. Highly recommended.
— Christopher Fettweis, Tulane University
Based on the evaluation of strategic-tactical gaps in US foreign policy, Graham Slater reminds us the imperfect nature of decision-making processes and the dangers of narratives seeking short term political gains. This is a very timely book in moments of unusual narratives in US foreign policy.
