Editorial Reviews

Review


"Deeply researched, well argued, and often convincing... Offers an intriguing and fresh interpretation of some of recent history's best-known and most important global conflicts." --Publishers Weekly


"What Zachary Shore refers to as 'strategic empathy' is a vitally important concept in international affairs, and he is to be lauded for this intelligent, discerning, and engagingly written book." --Fredrik Logevall, author of Embers of War, winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for History


"Zachary Shore articulates a provocative and compelling argument about a crucial yet understudied issue lying at the heart of decision making - how to read one's rivals. The analysis is developed in the context of artfully chosen, snappily written, historical case studies that make for captivating reading in and of themselves. This work will be of significant value and interest to scholars and policy makers alike." --Aviel Roshwald, author of The Endurance of Nationalism

This is a great history book but if you are looking for principles and lessons to enhance your professional capability or extending your influence, I advise you to give this book a skip.
