Niall Ferguson on Phillip Bobbit

In the 11 April 08 edition of the Int’l Herald Tribune, Niall Ferguson reviews Phillip Bobbit’s new book The Wars For the Twenty-First Century (Alfred A. Knopf). Looks like another must read from Bobbit, following his 2002 work The Shield of Achilles: War, Peace, and the Course of History (Penguin). From Ferguson:

"Terror and Consent" is quite simply the most profound book to have been written on the subject of American foreign policy since the attacks of 9/11 – indeed, since the end of the Cold War. It should be read by all three of the remaining candidates to succeed George W. Bush as American president.
