Gary Hart has long been one of the nation's foremost experts on national security, combining a deep knowledge of national security policy with first-hand experience of the political realities that influence how America safeguards itself and its interests. In his new book, Hart outlines thefundamental changes with which America must grapple when confronting the current terrorist threat--a threat with no state and no geographic home-base and thus no real target for the world's largest and most sophisticated military force. Hart argues for a security of the commons, emphasizing that thenew security will require a shield for the homeland as well as a cloak of non-military security, including security of income, community, environment, and energy.

Editorial Reviews

"With The Shield and the Cloak, Gary Hart extends his decades-long record as a source of sensible and stimulating ideas about American security. The cliche that 'everything has changed' for the United States, now that its Cold War enemy has vanished and new threats have appeared, usually goesno farther than that slogan. But Gary Hart once again clarifies what a better strategy would look like, and how the United States could put it into effect."-James Fallows, National Correspondent, The Atlantic
