A Pulitzer Prize-winning president emeritus on the Council on Foreign Relations presents a provocative assessment of the use and misuse of American power in international affairs that urges leaders to use their influence to solve major international problems rather than dictating to other nations, in a report that poses conduct rules while evaluating historical examples from the past half-century.

HARPERCOLL

“Few Americans know the inner world of American foreign policy—its feuds, follies, and fashions—as well as Leslie H. Gelb. . . .Power Rules builds on that lifetime of experience with power and is a witty and acerbic primer.” —The New York Times
