PressestimmenPaul Rich has done all of us a favor by bringing this excellent book back into circulation. Hay, a man of considerable erudition, writes with style, wit, charm and great insight. Given the current situation in the Middle East, the words almost jump off the page. In the early years of the 20th century, Hay offered insights and lessons that the world-and especially the Bush administration-had forgotten or ignored by the start of the 21st century. Perhaps Hay's profound insights will help us craft wiser and more successful policies in the near future. -- Harrell Rodgers, University of Houston
