War on Peace: The End of Diplomacy and the Decline of American Influence
`Astonishing reporting and gripping prose ... Based on interviews with every living Secretary of State plus dozens of whistle blowers and insiders, this book is an indispensable and fascinating revelation of what diplomats actually do and why undermining them is so dangerous. Farrow is a riveting storyteller with a great eye for colourful characters. This is one of the most important books of our time.' Walter Isaacson `Ronan Farrow has scooped us all (again). And it is no wonder. A gifted writer with a powerful intellect and a passion for truth, Farrow has become one of this generation's finest journalists and "War on Peace" a book that will be required reading for generations to come. It is perhaps the most riveting and relatable book on foreign policy and diplomacy I have ever read. I have covered these same corridors of diplomatic power, these same bloody war-zones, yet on every page of "War on Peace" I was astonished by what I learned.' Martha Raddatz, ABC News Chief Global Affairs Correspondent and author of The Long Road Home
