This new edition features the events of the 2012-16 period (spanning Obama’s second term), as well as many small changes throughout the book.
Amazon is now taking orders:
The occasion of a new edition is always bittersweet. The title has been in print for 12 years now, and along the way I’ve had the repeated opportunity to bring it up to date and make improvements. In the bitter column, however, the book sadly remains topical. I look forward to it properly becoming, as such, a history book.
Nevertheless, the publisher and I are excited about the new edition, and it’s my hope that it will accommodate those seeking a summary of both the conflict’s history and its recent developments.
Thank you for the continued support and interest.
