Endgame: Why American Interventions Become Quagmires

Grant Year: 2017


Christopher Kolenda will research and write a book that examines why recent U.S. interventions in the Middle East have failed to achieve favorable and durable outcomes. He will explore the extent to which these conflicts were shaped by the failure to plan for conflict termination, the challenges of modifying a failing strategy, and flagging domestic support.
