Summary

In the November/December 2014 issue:

CFR Senior Fellow Max Boot, Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies Director Richard Betts, RAND Senior Political Scientist Rick Brennan, Georgetown Professor Daniel Byman and Brookings Fellow Jeremy Shaprio, and former U.S. Special Envoy to Afghanistan Peter Tomsen debate the lessons of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, writes that the post-Cold War order is unraveling, and it will be missed.

Elizabeth Economy, senior fellow and director for Asia studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, explains why Xi Jinping's recent reforms might not be as transformative as he hopes.

Andrei Shleifer, professor of economics at Harvard, and Daniel Treisman, professor of political science at the University of California, argue that the transition states in Europe and Eurasia have become normal countries - no worse, and sometimes better, than other states at comparable levels of development.

And more.
