The author argues that during World War I, the German military leaders had available "very thorough reports" about the domestic situation, but "drew ... few consequences from the assessments they received.... [T]he German military leaders appear to have not considered in a professional and informed manner the information which was passed along."

Bush, George, and Brent Scowcroft. A World Transformed. New York: Knopf, 1998.

Clark comment: This book presents the joint memoirs of President Bush and Scowcroft, his national security adviser, of the seminal event of the late 1980s and early 1990s -- the end of the Cold War. Their telling of the story serves to remind us of the basic decency of the two individuals, but we are also reminded just how well the United States was served by having a leader of Bush's perspective at its helm during these critical years.

For Howard, FA 77.6, the dual structure of the narrative "gives the work a freshness that makes it readable as well as authoritative. In short, it is a good buy, both for scholars and the general public."

Gray, I&NS 26.5 (Oct. 2011), says that "this useful intellectual history of security studies ... emphaize[s] conceptual issues rather than operational ones," and therefore "exclude[s] the intelligence and professional military literature." The authors "deal fairly with each of the perspectives they consider. Their book is deeply researched, well organized, and clearly written."
