Description - Running the World by David J. Rothkopf
Running the World is an unprecedented look behind the scenes at the most powerful committee in the history of the world-the men and women closest to the president of the United States who make Americas decisions affecting war and peace, who are the architects of everything from covert operations to market bailouts to combating terrorism. This is the National Security Council, and its importance has never been clearer. Drawing from 130 exclusive interviews with many of the best-known and the most-significant figures to have played a central role in shaping Americas national security and foreign policies, David Rothkopf depicts with an eye for both personal detail and historical implications the real events from which todays headlines and Tom Clancy novels are drawn.
