"Joshua Baron has a profound understanding of how power works and how to make it work better. In Great Power Peace and American Primacy, he advances prophetic, provocative, and worldly arguments about the future of political order, stability, and peace. This is top-notch work on a grand scale by a formidable and ingenious thinker." - Joseph M. Parent, University of Miami, USA
