DETAILS

Author: Anthony Lake
Publisher: Little Brown and Company
ISBN / UPC: 0316559768
Condition: New/ Barely Used
Comments: This is a hardcover. Dust jacket included. This book is BRAND NEW!
Short Summary: Former national security advisor Anthony Lake examines major security threats facing the United States at the start of the 21st century: biological terrorism, cybercrime, the perils of peacekeeping, and so on. Each of the scenarios he describes in Six Nightmares begins with a fictional introduction to the topic; one, for instance, is a transcript of a conversation between the presidents of the United States and South Korea, discussing a civil war in North Korea and worrying about what China intends. The best parts of the book read like a memoir. Lake served under President Clinton for four years before he was nominated to head the CIA. When it became clear the GOP-controlled Senate was not likely to confirm him, Lake withdrew his name. The experience left him disappointed with "a Washington obsessed with political gamesmanship"--and also eager to settle a few scores, which he does between these covers. He strives for evenhandedness in a critique of Congress, but he's also quick to attack Republicans. The Senate's rejection of the comprehensive test-ban treaty in 1998, he writes, showed that "a handful of Republicans cared more about their hatred of the President than about their undoubted love for their country." He also takes digs at Clinton political advisor Dick Morris (for believing, he says, in poll-driven foreign policy) and The Washington Times (for breaking sensitive stories that he thinks hurt the national interest). His view of modern journalism is tempered by his own failed CIA confirmation experience, and he pointedly describes how a scandalmongering press goes about its destructive business: "Take the charge, call the alleged miscreant and get the denial or explanation, and print both. Let the reader decide which is true." He does have fond memories of his time serving under Clinton, recalling, for instance, the aftermath of a decision to bomb Baghdad: "Years later, the President was to remember the name of one of those who died, with concern for the loss of life but not, I believe, regret for having ordered the attack." Moments like these make one wish the book were more autobiographical than it is. Yet it is a fine volume nonetheless, and a good introduction to the foreign-policy headaches America is likely to face in the years ahead. --John J. Miller

What is ADD TO WISHLIST?
If there is an item you would like to get via 2SWAP, but it is not currently available on the site, or you do not have a 2SWAP credit in your account, you can add that item to your 2SWAP wishlist. You can add a specific item to your list, or a category of items - for example, "Cook Books." Then, when a matching item becomes available, you will receive an e-mail notification so you can claim it (assuming you have at least one credit in your 2SWAP account).

What is WANT IT?
Click the Want It button if you see an item and you WANT IT. Assuming you have a credit in your account, you will be prompted to confirm the request, and then the member who owns the item will be asked to mail it to you asap and at no charge to you.

Note: For each book you request we will deduct 1 swap credit from your account.

What is HAVE IT?
Click the HAVE IT button if you already own an item and want to list it in your 2SWAP account so other members can request it. This is a bit quicker than entering the ISBN or UPC number.

To get an item into your 2SWAP item list type in the ISBN or UPC code of the item (located next to the bar code). You can also tag the item in up to three categories, and write a comment about it.
