Exercise of Power: American Failures, Successes, and a New Path Forward in the Post-Cold War World by Robert M. Gates: Conversation Starters
The author of the bestselling autobiography, Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War, reminisces his vast experiences on national security and intelligence during his tenure of almost forty years in service under eight presidents. Robert M. Gates recalls historical events that have transpired after the Cold-War, in his latest book, Exercise of Power: America’s Failures, Successes, and a New Path Forward in the Post-Cold War World, and critiqued each administration in their management and mishandling of those events. Having dwelled in the presence of war for more than twenty years, the defense secretary laid down alternative suggestions on how past presidents could have dealt with previous problems and how the next leaders could put America back to the top of the world.
The book is an instant bestseller, as reported by The New York Times. Most readers find value in the information and insight provided by the book.
