New CFR Book: War By Other Means

The United States has forgotten how to use economic tools to advance its interests abroad and is losing ground as a world power, argue CFR Senior Fellows Robert D. Blackwill and Jennifer M. Harris in their new book, War by Other Means, which explores the statecraft of geoeconomics. 

Drawing on their combined foreign policy experience in both Republican and Democratic administrations, Blackwill and Harris urge the United States to give the same amount of attention to geoeconomic endeavors with allies and partners as to security cooperation, and offer a detailed set of policy prescriptions. Read more about the book »

Immigration policy and border security are among the most important issues being debated in the 2016 presidential election. In his book, The Closing of the American Border: Terrorism, Immigration, and Security Since 9/11, CFR Senior Fellow Edward Alden offers an analysis of the economic and diplomatic costs of making it harder for foreigners to travel, live, and work in the United States.
