"A must-read...[Mission Failure is] going to be one of the most talked about foreign policy books of the year." — Tom Friedman, The New York Times
The end of the Cold War led to a dramatic and fundamental change in the foreign policy of the United States. In his new book, Mission Failure, Michael Mandelbaum, one of America’s leading foreign-policy thinkers, provides an original, provocative, and definitive account of the ambitious but deeply flawed post-Cold War efforts to do nation-building and promote American values and institutions throughout the world. From military interventions in Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia and Kosovo to the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, Mandelbaum shows how American efforts to establish peace, democracy, and free-market economies failed.
In addition to talks on Mission Failure, geopolitics, and the global economy, Michael Mandelbaum is also available for speaking engagements on the 2016 Presidential election. In his new speech, Why Donald Trump? The 2016 Election and What Comes Next, he discusses the causes of the economic distress at the root of the Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders candidacies.
Johns Hopkins foreign policy specialist Michael Mandelbaum is a great explainer of the meaning and consequences of global developments and trends. One of Foreign Policy’s Top 100 Global Thinkers, he has penned 16 books, including the bestsellerThat Used to Be Us, co-written with Tom Friedman.
