Full Spectrum Diplomacy and Grand Strategy : Reforming the Structure and Culture of U.S. Foreign Policy
Full Spectrum Diplomacy and Grand Strategy: Reforming the Structure and Culture of U.S. Foreign Policy, by John Lenczowski offers a solution to one of the greatest weaknesses in U.S. foreign policy that has exacerbated the unprecedented anti-Americanism of recent years-the U.S. Government's inability to conduct the "full spectrum" of diplomatic arts and to integrate them with the other arts of statecraft at the level of grand strategy.

About John Lenczowski
John Lenczowski is founder, president, and professor at The Institute of World Politics in Washington, D.C.
In the long war of our time-against the Islamists' terror and their push for the world-wide imposition of shariah-we have so far failed to organize our government to win the crucial battle for mankind's minds and hearts. John Lenczowski gives us a brilliantly conceived and innovative strategy to win this war just as we won the Cold War. Look out, Muslim Brotherhood-here comes LibForAll. -- R. James Woolsey, former Director of the CIA; Chairman, Woolsey Partners LLC Dr. John Lenczowski brings the full force of a distinguished career in foreign policy and academia to the vitally important issues of American diplomacy in our troubled era. With the keen eye of both a practitioner and a grand strategist, he shows how our lack of appreciation for the influence culture that results from using a wide range of diplomatic tools has hindered American interests. But he goes beyond mere complaints to specific solutions-in areas ranging from public diplomacy to counterintelligence to cultural influence, Dr. Lenczowski shows how America and the world could benefit from an integrated strategy. This is must reading for foreign policy professionals and engaged patriots alike. -- Shelby Coffey, III, Trustee, Newseum, and Senior Fellow, Freedom Forum; former President, CNN Business News; Editor-in-Chief, Los Angeles Times
