New York, N.Y. G. P. Putnam's Sons, 2004. Uncorrected Proof for Limited Distribution. Trade Paperback. , 427,  pages. Map. Notes. Corners of several pages creased. Includes Preface: An Operating Theory of the World; Acknowledgments, Notes, and Index.

Thomas Barnett (born 1962) is a military geostrategist and former analyst at Wikistrat. He developed a geopolitical theory that divided the world into "the Functioning Core" and the "Non-Integrating Gap" that made him particularly notable prior to the 2003 U.S. Invasion of Iraq when he wrote an article for Esquire in support of the military action entitled "The Pentagon's New Map" (which would later become a book that would elaborate his theories). The central thesis of his geopolitical theory is that the connections the globalization brings between countries (including connectivity, finance, and media ) are synonymous with those countries with stable governments and rising standards of living. These countries form the Functioning Core. These regions contrast with those where globalization has not yet penetrated, which is synonymous with political repression, poverty, disease, and conflict. These areas make up the Non-Integrating Gap. Key to Barnett's geostrategic ideas is that the United States should "export security" to the Gap in order to connect those regions with the Core, even if this means going to war in Gap countries, followed by long periods of nation-building.

Whitehall, London: Royal United Service Institution, 1969. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. 73,  pages. Footnotes. Ink notation on the Table of Contents page. Cover has some wear and soiling. Topics covered include The New Context of Policy; Obligations Outside Europe; Britain in Europe; Instruments of Strategic Deterrence; Local War Forces; The Economic Outlays; and Britain's European Future. The author asserts that Britain has little alternative to increasing dependence on the United States other than to begin, first in the Mediterranean and then perhaps elsewhere, the cultivation of a stronger tradition of cooperation with Britain's continental neighbors. A move in this direction would be in line with the coordination of policies towards the 'Third World' that would stem from the greater economic integration of Western Europe. It would also be in line with the pronounced tendency for Commonwealth links to become ever weaker and less exclusive. The emergence of a Western European identity would give the British armed forces a heightened sense of purpose. Still more important is the prospect that a stable European pillar within the Western Alliance could do an immense amount, both materially and in less tangible respects, to preserve a modicum of order and sanity in what threatens to become an ever more bitter and divided world.
