Pulitzer Prize-Winner Leslie Gelb's Provocative and Timely Treatise on American Foreign Policy

Leslie Gelb has had an extremely distinguished career as a senior official for both the Defense and State Departments, and then as a columnist for the New York Times. Throughout his career he has been awarded top honors for his work in the US government including the Distinguished Service Award and the Distinguished Honor Award while working as the Assistant Secretary of State during the Carter Administration. He is also a Pulitzer Prize-winner in the field of Explanatory Journalism for his work at the New York Times.

In what Fareed Zakaria at the Washington Post calls, “a smart and lively new book,” Leslie Gelb draws on his vast experience to write a provocative account of how to think about and use America’s power in the world.

Inspired by Machiavelli’s The Prince, Power Rules persuasively illustrates the importance of the principle of mutual indispensability: Washington is the indispensable leader because it alone can galvanize coalitions to solve major international problems. Power Rules is an impassioned challenge to both liberals and conservatives to reclaim the true meaning of power and the essential role of common sense in solving global problems.
