In 2009, Mark Mykleby, a Marine colonel, was summoned to the Pentagon along with a fellow officer and charged with a seemingly impossible task: to create a new national grand strategy for America. They developed a paper later published by the Wilson Center as the National Strategic Narrative - that posited economic sustainability, not weapons systems, terrorism or the next war, is the key to America's successful path forward in the 21 st century. For the first time, the Pentagon publicly recognised that America's prosperity and global influence depends not on our investment in military defence, but in our domestic future. The good news? For the first time since the end of WWII, demographic trends and advances in housing, transportation, farming, and resource utilisation are aligned and together offer power great enough to effect systemic change. Things like walkable communities, regenerative agriculture, and resource productivity can be our saving grace. We can still do something - if we act fast. In The New Grand Strategy, Mykleby joins Patrick Doherty, a national security expert at the New America, and Joel Makower, an award-winning journalist focusing on corporate sustainability strategy, to expand the original grand strategy paper for a popular audience. They believe firmly that we have the fuel to restore prosperity, competitiveness, fiscal discipline, and security for generations to come - if only we'd use it.

Review:

"A story with a beginning, middle, and projected happy ending that will transcend our political divisions, orient us as a nation, and give us both a common direction and the confidence and commitment to get to our destination." --Anne-Marie Slaughter, President and CEO, New America

A story with a beginning, middle, and projected happy ending that will transcend our political divisions, orient us as a nation, and give us both a common direction and the confidence and commitment to get to our destination. Anne-Marie Slaughter, President and CEO, New America"

Our nation needs a new grand strategy and this is it. Mykleby, Doherty, and Makower have developed a pragmatic, actionable, long-term strategy that taps into what is best about America. In so doing, they re giving us, as a nation of citizens, the opportunity to move past the politics, cynicism, and apathy that are holding us back so we can get on with the hard work of reinventing America for our kids and grandkids. Admiral Mike Mullen (RET.), Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, 2007-11

Over time, America's soft power is more consequential around the world than our military might. Our soft power is linked profoundly to whether we are truly that shining city on a hill, admired for our freedom and the well-being of our people and the care we take for our children and future generations on this planet. "The New Grand Strategy" looks honestly at the sea of troubles in which America now finds itself, and, not stopping there, it charts an ambitious course to a better place. An important book. James Gustave Speth, former Administrator, United Nations Development Program, and former Dean, Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies

Visionary, crystal clear, and timely! The authors unite the strands of national policy into a coherent and inspiring Grand Strategy a practical blueprint for sustainable prosperity, security, and global leadership." David W. Orr, Paul Sears Distinguished Professor of Environmental Studies and Politics, Oberlin College

America is a purpose-driven nation that has lost its way. It is no longer clear what we stand for either at home or abroad. "The New Grand Strategy" offers an answer, a grand purpose of creating a sustainable future for Americans and the peoples of all nations. The goal may be grand, but the analysis is clear, simple, and accessible. It should be read by all presidential candidates and all voters. Anne-Marie Slaughter, President and CEO of New America; former Dean of Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Author of "Unfinished Business"

Mykleby, Doherty and Makower challenge us to move from inwardly focused belly-aching to outwardly-focused planning and mobilization. Thankfully, they envision the transformation being led by nimble free enterprise rather than clunky government. Planning the work and working the plan starts with careful thought about incentives and continues with a commitment to implementation. That's what "The Grand New Strategy" supplies. U.S. Rep. Bob Inglis (R-SC4 1993-1999; 2005-2011)

B. H. Liddel Hart, the British military historian, described grand strategy as the application of a nation s major resources to the achievement of its large purposes. In this new, comprehensive advocacy of a 21st century American grand strategy, authors Mykleby, Doherty, and Makower propose nothing short of a new American operating system based on the central organizing principle of full-spectrum sustainability and resilience founded on an economic revolution with grassroots in an astonishing compendium of local initiatives. Were the next president to adopt their blueprint for achieving our nation s large purposes, it would launch us toward nothing less than a second American Revolution. Gary Hart, United States Senator (Ret.)

There are many defining moments that are seen only in retrospect. This is not one of them. The confluence of internal and external factors has resulted in a defining moment for America today and we must act. The New Grand Strategy is the best blueprint I have seen for capturing and maximizing this moment. It offers us a clear, coherent and deeply compelling narrative to carry us thru the complexities we are facing. It is a fully actionable strategy that will allow America to adapt, compete, grow and evolve in a manner in line with our national values that transcend generations. It is truly inspiring and essentially the only bandwagon we need to be on. Chris Luebkeman, Director, Global Foresight and Innovation, Arup

America and the world are officially off course, but Mykleby, Doherty, and Makower show it is very fixable a very competent and inspiring book. Jim Clifton, Chairman and CEO, Gallup
