On the morning of September 11, 2001, the United States awoke to find itself at war. If that much was clear, many other things were not—including the identity and nature of the enemy, the location of the battleground, and the strategy and tactics necessary for victory. This collection brings today's most authoritative thinking to bear on these and other issues at the heart of the nation's preeminent security challenge.
"There is no better introduction to [this] war—its origins, its perplexities, and its main battles—than this book."
—Eliot A. Cohen, Director of the Philip Merrill Center for Strategic Studies at Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies
"This collection brings together in one place all of the seminal works on the 'global war on terror'... Indispensable."
—Kenneth Pollack, Director of Research at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution
