Wess Mitchell have articulated a provocative justification for a revitalized strategy of containment focused on China, Iran, and Russia. --Brad Stapleton, Cato Journal The book offers a realist critique of American grand strategy in the contemporary geopolitical landscape. Grygiel and Mitchell lay out a highly readable if grim assessment of US alliance relationships , especially with NATO, Central Europe, the Middle East, and East Asia, and why they are so important for managing the dangers posed by rising rivals, namely Russia, Iran, and China. . . .
