Clements Center Predoctoral Fellow Peter Slezkine publishes review of Michael Kimmage’s Abandonment of the West: The History of an Idea in American Foreign Policy combined with a broader reflection on the history of US leadership in "The Case for Questioning U.S. Leadership" in National Interest.
Excerpt from the review published in National Defense University Press:
"Subordinating Intelligence is a well-written analysis of the evolution of the relationship between DOD and CIA in the post–Cold War era. One valuable contribution from this history is the identification of the barriers to cooperation, which pop up time after time in the various instances Oakley describes. A second contribution is the isolation of the factors that made a difference where integration was achieved... Interagency alignment is a prerequisite for success. Oakley’s book is a model for more that needs to be written—on DOD and State, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and CIA, U.S. Aid and DOD, and so forth. I highly recommend his book.
