Michael E. O’Hanlon - The Art of War in an Age of Peace

This event is now a virtual program.

About the Book
Since the end of the Cold War, the United States has been the world’s dominant superpower. But in the decades that have followed the collapse of the Soviet Union, Michael O’Hanlon argues that American leadership has done little to solidify a strategic approach to the country’s comprehensive national security policy.

While China has clearly laid out its aggressively expansionist ambitions, and Russia steadily regains its lost power by capitalizing on newfound influence, has the United States developed its own vision of the future? In The Art of War in an Age of Peace, O’Hanlon argues that we haven’t – but that we easily can. Drawing on decades of experience in defense and security, O’Hanlon proposes a blueprint for American national security that considers realistic viability, the current political atmosphere, and moral duty, envisioning a future in which the United States is not at risk of losing sight of its place in the world.

Michael E. O’Hanlon is the Sydney Stein, Jr. Chair and director of research in foreign policy at the Brookings Institution. He has been named one of the “most influential people” in national security and defense by Washingtonian. His vast experience includes roles with the CIA, a Congressional budget office, the Peace Corps, and the Institute for Defense Analyses, among other organizations. He holds both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree from Princeton University.
