The Middle East is war ravaged. Beyond War: Reimagining America's Role and Ambitions In A New Middle East gives a ground-breaking look into America's role in the Middle East. The author urges the US to change its policies in order to be in sync with the rapidly changing Middle East. The book takes you through Iraq, Tunisia, Libya and other Middle Eastern countries in a chapter-wise manner. There was a time when militancy was at its peak in these countries but now, Middle East countries have evolved with time and the US is urged to desist from using lethal force to suppress militancy. While nothing can be done about the past, the wars and the resulting downturn, a change in attitude brought about by the economic growth in that region along with the Muslim moderates can help to resolve the issue.
