In this timely new book, two distinguished historians remind us that American prosperity and security were built by leaders with a tragic understanding of the past. Brands and Edel argue that recovering a tragic sensibility--an understanding that the descent into violence and war has been all too common throughout human history--is necessary to address the dangers that stalk the international order today.
