Beyond War: Reimagining American Influence in a New Middle East distills eleven years of expert reporting for the New York Times, Reuters, and the Atlantic into a clarion call for change. Here Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Rohde exposes how a dysfunctional Washington squandered billions on contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan, neglected its true allies in the war on terror, and failed to employ its most potent nonmilitary weapons: American consumerism, technology, and investment. The author then surveys post-Arab Spring Tunisia, Turkey, and Egypt, and finds a yearning for American technology, trade, and education. He argues that only Muslim moderates, not Americans, can eradicate militancy. An incisive look at the evolving nature of war, Beyond War shows how the failed American effort to back moderate Muslims since 9/11 can be salvaged. Download and start listening now!
