Editorial Reviews

From the Author

In 1512 Niccolo Machiavelli defined politics as the struggle for power. During that same era, science became defined as the quest for knowledge. For nearly five centuries now this gap between politics and science - what C.P. Snow famously called "the two cultures" - has steadily widened.

Now Herbert E. Meyer argues that as we move into the twenty-first century our survival requires that we fuse the two cultures; that we transform politics itself from the struggle for power to the quest for knowledge about how we can best organize and manage our public affairs.

About the Author

Herb Meyer is host and producer of The Siege of Western Civilization, a DVD outlining the threats to our security, our economy, and our culture that has become an international best-seller.

During the Reagan Administration, Mr. Meyer served as Special Assistant to the Director of Central Intelligence and Vice Chairman of the CIA's National Intelligence Council.  In these positions, he managed production of the U.S. National Intelligence Estimates and other top-secret projections for the President and his national security advisers.  Mr. Meyer is widely credited with being the first senior US Government official to forecast the collapse of the Soviet Union.--a forecast for which he later was awarded the U.S. National Intelligence Distinguished Service Medal, which is the Intelligence Community's highest honor.

Formerly an associate editor of FORTUNE, he has authored several books including The War Against Progress, Real-World Intelligence, and Hard Thinking. Mr. Meyer and his wife, Jill, are co-authors of How to Write, which is among the world's most widely used writing handbooks.

Mr. Meyer's essays on Intelligence and Politics have been published in The Wall Street Journal, National Review Online, Policy Review, and The American Thinker.

Mr. Meyer is a frequent guest on leading television and radio talk shows.
