I have a listicle of books on the national security state over at the National Interest:
The following list is of the important books of 2013 that should be on your radar for 2014.
My specific interests are in the history and the nature of the organizations that make up our national security state. Broadly speaking, the books below are about our national security state, how it came to be, what it has become, and what it worries about. We talk a great deal about grand strategy, but the production of grand strategy and the delineation of the national interest depends, to large extent, on how we structure our national security institutions.
