Reseña del editor:

From #1 bestselling author Ron Suskind comes an explosive account of the looming national security crisis that America faces at the height of the election year.

Ron Suskind s next book promises to be a bracing international thriller an ensemble of uranium merchants and panicked diplomats, stealthy Jihadist soldiers and CIA operatives, anxious Muslim children and angry world leaders a diverse cast of players who will define the struggle between hope and fear in the modern era. Suskind will close the Bush years a period he has helped to define with a startling glimpse at what America actually faces across the roiling world. In the intelligence and military communities, the overwhelming concern is the uncontrolled spread of nuclear weapons and the ingredients from which weapons can be composed across a globe exploding with conflict and anti-American fervor. It is a failure of government that we are left with this overwhelming security issue both domestically, where our security is deeply compromised, and internationally, where we face a host of seen and unseen threats. Suskind s readers will feel they are receiving the National Security Council briefing that candidates get when they become a party s nominee.

Like his two recent bestsellers The Price of Loyalty in 2004 and The One Percent Doctrine in 2006 this book will explode in the middle of an election year with unparalleled disclosures and analysis. The book s nature and timing will place it at the very center of the election battle as it enters its final six months. It will be a must-read for anyone hoping to exercise truly informed consent and, at the same time, show the first, tentative steps toward restoring the hopefulness the fearless optimism that is part of the long American tradition.
