            Recent Publications with the Bridging the Gap Book Series:

            by Rupal N. Mehta

            “Delaying Doomsday sheds new light on an important and policy-relevant question: when and why do states end their pursuit of nuclear weapons? The book highlights the importance of US policy for effectively countering nuclear proliferation around the world.” — Elizabeth N. Saunders, Associate Professor, School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University

            “Why do countries renounce their nuclear ambitions? Rupal Mehta answers this important question with a novel theory and evidence, pointing to the crucial role of external actors such as the United States in shaping incentives for states to undergo nuclear reversal. Accessible, timely, and compelling, the book has enormous implications for ongoing proliferation challenges such as Iran and North Korea and the conduct of US foreign policy.”-” — Sarah E. Kreps, Professor of Government, Cornell University

            by James H. Lebovic

            Planning to Fail breaks new ground in the study of US grand strategy and military performance. Instead of asking why the United States chose to fight in Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq, Lebovic focuses on how different administrations waged each war and how haphazard strategic planning made it impossible to achieve their aims. His accounts of these long and unsuccessful campaigns are rich, detailed, and convincing, and the book contains many important lessons for leaders hoping to avoid their predecessors’ mistakes.” – Stephen Walt, Robert and Renee Belfer Professor of International Affairs, Harvard Kennedy School

            “In this path-breaking study, Lebovic explains how the policy milieu in Washington produced similar patterns in the course and conduct of US intervention in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. Officials responded to proximate goals in each of these conflicts, never devising a grand strategy that could capitalize on success or reduce the possibility of failure. Planning to Fail offers critical insight into the limits of the policy process when it comes to avoiding the perils of intervention.” – James J. Wirtz, Dean of School of International Graduate Studies and Professor, Naval Postgraduate School

            “It has always been a great puzzle of American politics why US policymakers, who are normally skeptical of nation-building and other ambitious schemes of social engineering at 下载全民体彩, regularly are overly optimistic about it abroad, especially when they can do it using the US military. Lebovic offers a troubling but compelling explanation for the political myopia that has plagued recent US decisions to go to war from Vietnam through Iraq. We can only hope that after reading his book, future policymakers will take the long, long look before they leap into complex military operations.” –Michael C. Desch, Packey J. Dee Professor of International Affairs and Founding Director of the Notre Dame International Security Center

            by Matthew Kroenig

            The Logic of American Nuclear Strategy is a major contribution to the national debate about the role of nuclear weapons in U.S. national security policy. Matthew Kroenig provides penetrating insights into how nuclear posture affects a variety of national security interests and the book is a must read for anyone who wishes to understand this increasingly vital set of issues.” – Stephen Hadley, former National Security Adviser to U.S. President George W. Bush

            “Matthew Kroenig has provided an innovative and counter-intuitive study of why nuclear superiority might matter and why practitioners of both political parties have gravitated consistently towards it even as academic theorists have argued that it doesn’t matter. This is an agenda setting book that will be debated by scholars and policy-makers for years to come.” – Eric Edelman, former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy and Hertog Practitioner-in-Residence at Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies

            “Contrary to much that has been written on the subject, in this provocative new study Matthew Kroenig argues that the United States can attain, and should seek, meaningful military superiority over other nuclear-armed states. This is an important statement of a controversial position that deserves to be read and debated by both policy makers and political scientists.” – Aaron Friedberg, Professor of Politics and International Affairs, Princeton University

            by Jeffrey A. Friedman

            “Jeff Friedman’s War and Chance makes an important contribution to the literature on intelligence analysis, intelligence reform and the assessment and evaluation of evidence in intelligence estimates. It is comprehensive, well-written, well-organized, and meticulous in its analysis. It carefully, logically and strongly advocates for the use of more precise numerical probability estimates in making judgments and predictions regarding uncertain events over the use of vague wording such as ‘highly likely’ or ‘unlikely.’ Friedman’s book does a terrific job marshaling an enormous amount of material to make a creative argument which deserves much wider discussion.” – Rose McDermott, Professor of International Relations, Brown University

            “The world is uncertain, but even the most experienced leaders and policy experts have great difficulties dealing with probabilities. Jeffery Friedman’s deep discussion of how this kind of analysis can lead not only to a better understanding but also to better practices.” – Robert Jervis, author of How Statesmen Think

            “Uncertainty is a large, inevitable, but unwelcome part of national security decision-making, and is too often obscured rather than recognized and confronted. In an elegant and creative analysis, Jeffrey Friedman persuasively refutes many longstanding misconceptions and provides analysts and practitioners alike an invaluable guide to thinking about the unknown.” – Paul R. Pillar, Georgetown University, and author of Intelligence and U.S. Foreign Policy
