August in Washington means lots of folks out on vacation, and some empty offices inside the Pentagon. If you’re preparing to take some time off, you’ll probably want to take some reading material along with you. Dr. Nora Bensahel and her colleague Lt. Gen David Barno (USA ret.) of the School of International Service at American University write the Strategic Outpost series at War on the Rocks. Their latest column is a list of recommended reading for the summer season. Dr. Bensahel discussed how they chose the list on National Defense Week.
