Senator Chuck Hagel has long been admired by his colleagues on both sides of the Senate floor for his honesty, integrity, and common-sense 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 current state of our nation and provides substantial, meaningful proposals that can guide America back onto the right path.

In America: Our Next Chapter, Hagel speaks the truth as he sees it—in a direct and refreshingly unvarnished manner. 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—including the health care crisis, immigration, and Social Security and Medicare reform—and global climate change. He confronts foreign policy problems that the current administration has bungled or ignored, including China's growing economy; control of U.S. debt; India's and Pakistan's nuclear capabilities; and Iran's aggressive political, ideological, and nuclear stances. He decries the pervasive disease of third world poverty, arguing convincingly that this is where the real fight against terrorism must begin. Always true to the beliefs instilled in 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. And, of course, he gives a candid examination of the debacle that is the Iraq War.

Chuck Hagel challenges our responsibility in this excellent book which reads like a serious of thoughtful, political science essays. As a frustrated, moderate Democrat, I devoured this sensible, compelling work. Like too few of his political peers, he puts his service to the people ahead of party politics. He's a Republican, but more than that he's a committed American.

War hero, public servant, businessman, diplomat, patriot. Hagel's having an amazing life and uses his experience and exprtise to offer an honest, fair evaluation of the state of the world, without ever saying "I told you so." Why isn't this guy running for the highest office!?! A presidential candidate of any party would be wise to get him on their ticket...or at the very least, get his endorsement.

Excellent book. It is honest, educational and fascinating. I recommend the book highly for all those who care for the future of USA, and all those who deal with the USA, and those who are students of American politics. It is also a testament and example of the character of Mr. Hagel as a good politicians who cared about the common good , rather than only his own . Mr. Hagel recognized and highlight an important principle , that the World is interconnected, and for the USA to stay a super power should establish it self on this principle and fact.

I read chapters of this very interesting book twice. Chuck Hagel is a great American and our national defense will be covered with him in the Secretary of Defense position. Everything he said made so much sense. I greatly recommend you read this book.

This is an outstanding book! Chuck Hagel is the voice of reason when it comes to the problems facing America. His approach is bipartisan and down to earth. Too bad there aren't more Senators and Congressmen like him! I am very disappointed that he is leaving the Senate. As a lifelong Democrat, I would vote for him in a heart beat!
  • Quynaus
Very relevant insight to the current world situation event though the book was written is 2008. More relevant today!
  • lacki
It provides some insight into his thinking and priorities and his thoughts about the Middle East. It's not a gripping read, however.
Senator Chuck Hagel can hardly be matched in his sense of U.S. needs, our problems and explanation of the way toward a better future.
