About the Book

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has long been admired for his honesty, integrity, and commonsense approach to the challenges of our times. The Los Angeles Times has praised his "bold positions on foreign policy and national security" and wondered, "What's not to like?" In America: Our Next Chapter, Nebraska-born Hagel offers a hard-hitting examination of the state of our nation and provides substantial, meaningful proposals that can guide America back onto the right path.

Basing his suggestions on thorough research and careful thought, as well as on personal insight from his years as a political insider, successful businessman, and decorated war hero, he discusses domestic issues such as control of U.S. debt and confronts foreign policy problems, including China's growing economy and Iran's aggressive political, ideological, and nuclear stances. Always true to the beliefs instilled in him during his childhood on the prairie, he speaks passionately about service—to one's country and to one's fellow citizens—as the path toward a renewed America.

A staunch Republican yet a "hero to liberals" (Time), Secretary Hagel asks the tough questions and delivers straight answers to America's most pressing problems. America: Our Next Chapter is a serious, honest, and ultimately optimistic look at our nation's future, from an American original.
