* Now available in paperback In the -holds-barred tradition that has won him so many fans across the nation and around the world, best-selling author and strategist Ralph Peters confronts the crucial security issues of our time--and the troubled times to come. With his trademark clarity and force, Peters argues that we have left behind the Age of Ideologies to enter a violent period in which ethnicity and religion--blood and faith--will continue to be the source of ferocious rebellions, gecide, and global terrorism. His compelling vision spares neither our foreign policy r our domestic follies as he ruthlessly outlines what it will take to protect our country against this new breed of enemies. * Russia is back as an aggressive imperialist power. * We have forgotten what it takes to win wars, leading to tragic, unnecessary failures. * Too many Americans still refuse to take our enemies seriously, even though terrorists and foreign leaders are bent on inflicting apocalyptic destruction on us. * hose enemies will use nuclear weapons, if allowed to possess them. * Religious wars are impossible to prevent--because our enemies desire them. * The Middle East is headed for greater chaos, and Israel may t survive. Despite these challenges, the United States will remain the world's most successful and greatest power--but the cost will be determined by our willingness to face a new century's brutal realities. Wars of Blood and Faith continues the ever popular series of work by Ralph Peters on strategy, conflict, and the military published by Stackpole Books--titles that have t only excited and informed a wide range of readers, but have profoundly influenced our national security.
