How the World's Deadliest Countries Can Forge a Path to Security, a Political Science Book Talk & Signing
Rachel Kleinfeld is a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and was the founding CEO of the Truman National Security Project. She has written two previous books and has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and more. Kleinfeld will discuss and sign A Savage Order: How the World's Deadliest Countries Can Forge a Path to Security ($28.95 Pantheon).
In this powerful and urgent book, Kleinfeld examines why some democracies are crippled by extreme violence and how they can regain security. Drawing on fifteen years of study and firsthand field research--interviewing generals, former guerrillas, activists, politicians, mobsters, and law enforcement in countries around the world--Kleinfeld tells the stories of societies that successfully fought seemingly ingrained violence and offers penetrating conclusions about what must be done to build governments that are able to protect the lives of their citizens.
