In building teams, Gates reflects that changing an organization may require a leader sacrifice speed of change with a gain of getting change right. Slowing down the pace allows for greater buy in of a program, as well as better-developed recommendations from all those involved.

This book is a primer for military officers who look to lead at the operational and strategic levels. Further, it serves as a guide to career and appointed leadership in government on how to lead change in large organizations. It is a fast read, and a worthwhile addition to any leader’s bookshelf.

One of my favorite books, Rosa Brooks examines the blurring of the boundaries between war and peace that has evolved over the past 25 years, especially, though not entirely, as a result of 9/11. Bringing to bear a rather unusual combination of perspectives—daughter of peacenik activists, international law professor, former DOD staffer, and special forces wife—she digs down deep into the implications of these trends for human rights, rule of law, and the nature and mode of operation of the military and the state.

Author Anne-Marie Slaughter upends the conception of power politics & grand strategy through networks: “a global web of networks where games are played not through bargaining but by building connections and relationships. The book dives deeply into “network science” and the dynamics of nonhierarchical systems. Energy, trade, disease, crime, terrorism, human rights: in Slaughter’s view, these are all areas of threat and opportunity that are now driven more by networks than by traditional interstate relations.”
