Since the end of the Cold War, America's national security establishment has been searching for a new operating theory to explain how this seemingly "chaotic" world actually works. Gone is the clash of blocs, but replaced by what? Thomas Barnett has the answers. A senior military analyst with the U.S. Naval War College, he has given a constant stream of briefings over the past few years, and particularly since 9/11, to the highest of high-level civilian and military policymakers-and now he gives it to you. The Pentagon's New Map is a cutting-edge approach to globalization that combines security, economic, political, and cultural factors to do no less than predict and explain the nature of war and peace in the twenty-first century. Building on the works of Friedman, Huntington, and Fukuyama, and then taking a leap beyond, Barnett crystallizes recent American military history and strategy, sets the parameters for where our forces will likely be headed in the future, outlines the unique role that America can and will play in establishing international stability-and provides much-needed hope at a crucial yet uncertain time in world history. For anyone seeking to understand the Iraqs, Afghanistans, and Liberias of the present and future, the intimate new links between foreign policy and national security, and the operational realities of the world as it exists today, The Pentagon's New Map is a template, a Rosetta stone. Agree with it, disagree with it, argue with it-there is no book more essential for 2004 and beyond.… (mer)

This book really opened my eyes to what America's place in the world and role in globalization has been and should be. The United States, a composite of the rest of the world, is the natural leader and model for . Great power war has ended. Where there are conflicts within regions and nations, it usually stems from resistance to connectivity with the rest of the world. Sometimes, failed states and bad actors require force to a prevent humanitarian crises. After the force has been employed, it is important to follow up with security and assistance and help the affected people establish rules to enable them connect to the rest of the world. Only the United State has the resources to play that part, but it would be smart for the rising powers to help and America should welcome that help. ( )

I think that the author has a point with the stuff he says in his book. ( )

An important work that attempts to demonstrate the direction that the Pentagon will have to make in the 21st Century. He points out that Islam has "bleeding borders," anywhere that Islam rubs against other cultures, it bleeds, or sheds the blood of others. This work fuels related books such as Samuel Huntington's, Clash of Civilizations. Although he has no extended discussion of Islam of Islamism (pp. 42, 109).

Barnett states: 1) The world is divided into a Functioning Core and a Non-Integrating Group; 2) Connectivity is the primary method to define and influence which countries move into the Functioning Core; and 3) Economic relationships have replaced military power.

He seems to be postulating a realistic appraisal of Pentagon efforts and is less ideologically committed than many books of the same ilk. I believe it could be read profitably by many whether a person is a conservative or a liberal.

Barnett?s book started out strong, but it became less credible towards the end. His contention that much of what ails the earth is due to a lack of connectedness is a reasonable one, and it explains a lot, but it doesn?t explain everything. I need to go r
