Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The inconclusive and damaging wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are vivid testimony to the failure of American foreign policy. Hearts, Minds, and Hydras is William Nester’s forensic analysis of the reasons for this failure. It arrives at just the right time, and it is to be fervently hoped that U.S. political leaders and policymakers will read his excellent and well-researched book before they repeat the mistakes of the last decade."—Sarwar Kashmeri, fellow, Foreign Policy Association; senior fellow, Atlantic Council; and author of NATO 2.0: Reboot or Delete?

“In a comprehensive and highly critical account of George W. Bush’s Global War on Terror and of the neoconservatives who helped guide and support it, William Nester has provided a sharply drawn realist perspective on our last decade.”—James Dobbins, former special envoy for Afghanistan and author of After the Taliban: Nation Building in Afghanistan
