Overview

America is at a strategic crossroads. As the world’s lone superpower, we face savage hostility, at home and abroad, from critics furious over our power and success—and their own failure. Should we retreat from the struggle for human freedom to please religious extremists, decayed European powers, and an irresponsible global media?

Absolutely not, according to Ralph Peters, a strategist with an unrivaled record of predicting future threats. America’s heroic past should make us proud, but we should embrace the possibility of an even greater future. New glory will augment the old in the years ahead—if our leaders make the right decisions today.

In this sweeping, eye-opening book, Peters delivers an insider’s critique of our intelligence system and our overstretched military before describing an innovative strategy befitting the greatest (and most virtuous) power in history.

Editorial Reviews

David Ignatius
"A former Army intelligence officer and author of previous blood-and-guts military books, Peters has dedicated his latest one "To our troops." And New Glory captures what a lot of the old soldiers think. It's a triumphalist, tub-thumping book, dressing up the old certainties about American primacy for the 21st century."
—The Washington Post
Michael Potemra
"Real thinking-outside-the-box...iconoclastic...astute and historically informed...inspiring but also highly realistic."
National Review, Sept. 26, 2005
