What I am Reading

I am on the final chapter of Coyne's After War. This book has been on my desk for some time now and I am glad I finally got around to reading it.

In the book, Coyne lays out a framework to illustrate the potential problems involved with establishing liberal democracies by force. Observing the relevant successes (Germany, Japan) and failures (Somalia, Haiti), he shows what problems policymakers will continue to have in Afghanistan and Iraq. In his final chapter, Coyne lays out his plan for spreading liberty.

I highly recommend this book, so pick up a copy right away.
