THE FIRST ON MY BLOCK !


Posted by Picasa

Dr. Barnett was kind enough to have his publisher send me a copy of the uncorrected proof limited edition of his Blueprint For Action for me to review for another venue ( which I will cross-post here at Zenpundit) allowing me to get the jump on the rest of the blogosphere - and not a few old media reviewers.

If you have been following Tom's blogging this past year you already have some idea of the shape of BFA but as I scan quickly, there are some twists and surprises in the text even for those familiar with PNM. I'm going to start digging in this weekend but my tentative impression - coupled with a close reading of Dr. Barnett's interview with Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld for Esquire magazine - is that BFA may be a far more influential book in terms of public policy than The Pentagon's New Map.

The first book was the vision. The second looks to be the structure.

You lucky dog! We'll all be anxiously awaiting your review!
 
Congrats!
 
Hey Chirol, Hey Dan,

Thank you. It was a very nice gesture for Tom to have his publisher send me a copy, given the number of newspapers and magazines out there competing for one. My review is pretty small beer in comparison though my target audience, mostly historians, would have a high interest level.

Interestingly enough, these uncorrected proofs do not have indexes and the endnotes are all marked " 00". That kind of organizational editing must be the final step before sending the book to press for the 1st edition.
 
Very cool. I can't wait to get mine (in October!).
 
Oh, you dog!

You leave us with tantalizing morsels... ;)
 
Thanks YH,
