Lines of Fire [9780811711128]

  • For three decades, Ralph Peters has been the most provocative and visionary American writer on strategy, security, intelligence, and military affairs, predicting every major trend that has plagued the post-Cold-War world. A career military officer and acclaimed author, he has always faced the issues others shunned:
  • The explosion of religious terrorism and its all-or-nothing nature
  • The resurgence of deadly ethnic strife as borders disintegrate around the world
  • The fateful weaknesses of our extravagantly expensive intelligence system
  • The dangers of over-reliance on technology to solve human problems
  • The endless nature of 21st-century warfare
  • Our military leadership's difficulty adapting to a changed world
  • The colossal waste of taxpayer dollars on dubious weapons--at a cost in soldiers' lives
  • Why wishful thinking is as deadly as fanaticism

  • These and other enduringly vital themes are addressed in this definitive collection of the finest and most influential work of Ralph Peters over a generation of conflict. Lines of Fire is a career-capping and indispensible work for understanding today's crises--and tomorrow's.
