Harlan Ullman - #2185-2

The Tom Barnard Podcast

Depending on your age, MAD could mean a few different things.  In the 50s, it was a magazine.  In the 60s and 70s, it was Mutual Assured Destruction.  Now there's a new acronym in town: Massive Attacks of Disruption.  We've seen a few just in the past few years.  Pandemics, riots, and the chip shortage have caused some of the biggest disruptions in the history of humanity, and they all happened in just the past two years.  If these become more frequent or more intense, you may be pining for the days of duck and cover.  Hey, at least it came with a cute duck mascot back then. The Fifth Horseman and the New MAD: How Massive Attacks of Disruption Became the Looming Existential Danger to a Divided Nation and the World at Large  - amzn.to/3N9Z1sOSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Harlan Ullman, “Anatomy of Failure: Why America Loses Every War It Starts” (Naval Institute Press, 2017)

New Books in Military History

Since 1945, the United States has lost every war it started. Why? A Vietnam War veteran, Tufts University Ph. D. and intimate of many of the leading figures in the American national security apparatus in the past forty-years, Dr. Harlan Ullman‘s new book endeavors to find the answers to this most disturbing of queries. An in depth examination of American strategic and military decision-making since the Eisenhower era, Dr. Ullman shows the reader the flawed policy processes and decisions which made debacles such as Vietnam War, the Second Gulf War and the ongoing war in Afghanistan all too predictable. According to Dr. Ullman one answer to his query is simply that almost all presidents and administrations since 1960 have consistently failed to use sound strategic thinking and lacked sufficient knowledge or understanding of the circumstances prior to deciding whether or not to employ force.From John F. Kennedy to Donald Trump, from Vietnam to the war against ISIS, Anatomy of Failure: Why America Loses Every War It Starts (Naval Institute Press, 2017) is in the words of Edward Luce of the Financial Times a must read book for anyone who wishes to find out why American foreign policy has in too many cases been a catalog of failure. All from the man who invented the concept of ‘Shock and Awe’. Charles Coutinho holds a doctorate in history from New York University. Where he studied with Tony Judt, Stewart Stehlin and McGeorge Bundy. His Ph. D. dissertation was on Anglo-American relations in the run-up to the Suez Crisis of 1956. His area of specialization is 19th and 20th-century European, American diplomatic and political history.
