About the Book: Though our military remains undefeated, the United States has lost every war since World War II. But within a generation, our military’s fate will undoubtedly change if we continue to cling to the past. Today, more than eighty years after WWII and thirty years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, the number of armed conflicts being waged around the world has doubled. If the United States refuses to accept that we are, once again, living in dangerous, unpredictable times, it is inevitable that our military—until now undefeated—will fail.

Hailed by Publishers Weekly as “an authoritative and skillful analysis of the state of war today” and with a foreword by General Stanley McChrystal (Ret.), The New Rules of War: Victory in the Age of Durable Disorder is an urgent exploration of warfare—past, present, and future—that asks why we no longer win wars, and then explains the ten rules we must follow so we can.

About the Author: Dr. Sean McFate is a Professor of Strategy at the National Defense University and Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service. He served as a paratrooper in the US Army’s 82nd Airborne Division and, then, worked for a major private military corporation, where he ran operations similar to those in his novels Shadow War and Deep Black. He is the author of The Modern Mercenary: Private Armies and What They Mean for World Order, and he holds a BA from Brown University, an MA from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, and a PhD in international relations from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
