"Drawing on her decades of experience, Pandith unweaves the tangled web of extremism and demonstrates how government officials, tech CEOs, and concerned citizens alike can do their part to defeat it." - Former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright There is a war being fought, and we are losing it. Despite the billions of dollars spent since 9/11 trying to defeat terrorist organizations, the so-called Islamic State, Al Qaeda, and other groups remain a terrifying geopolitical threat. In some ways the threat has grown worse: The 9/11 hijackers came from far away; the danger today can come from anywhere-from the other side of the world to across the street. Unable to stem recruitment, we seem doomed to a worsening struggle with a constantly evolving enemy that remains several steps ahead of us. Unfortunately, current policies seem almost guaranteed not to reduce extremist violence but instead to make it easier for terrorists to spread their hateful ideas, recruit new members, and carry out attacks. We actually possess the means right now to inoculate communities against extremist ideologies. In How We Win, Farah Pandith presents a revolutionary new analysis of global extremism as well as powerful but seldom-used strategies for vanquishing it. Drawing on her visits to eighty countries, the hundreds of interviews and focus groups she's conducted around the world, and her high-level experience in the Bush and Obama administrations, Pandith argues for a paradigm shift in our approach to combat extremism, one that mobilizes the expertise and resources of diplomats, corporate leaders, mental health experts, social scientists, entrepreneurs, local communities, and, most of all, global youth themselves. There is a war being fought, and we can win it. This is how.

"Drawing on her decades of experience, Pandith unweaves the tangled web of extremism and demonstrates how government officials, tech CEOs, and concerned citizens alike can do their part to defeat it." -- Former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright<u1:p></u1:p> "A leader in countering violent extremism, Farah Pandith's voice is needed now more than ever. Her book How We Win is filled with inspiring stories and proactive solutions on how to defeat extremist ideologies. It is essential reading for all of us." -- Hillary Rodham Clinton "Farah Pandith draws on her wide-ranging experience as a diplomat and communicator to lay out a comprehensive strategy against violent extremism. A timely book for government and civil society leaders." -- Michael Chertoff, former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security and Cofounder and Executive Chairman of the Chertoff Group "The private sector has a vital role to play in stopping violent extremism. Farah Pandith's revelatory How We Win is the playbook we've been waiting for. Read it and join in. Farah has much to tell us. The world will benefit from her insights." -- Shelly Lazarus, Chairman Emeritus, Ogilvy & Mather "Farah has written a vitally important book on an incredibly important topic that for too long has received short shrift. Every policy maker involved in national security and foreign affairs needs to focus on how we still face a generational ideological challenge." -- Michael Leiter, former Director of the U.S. National Counterterrorism Center "For decades, policy makers, academics, and community leaders have struggled with the question How do people of good faith stop extremism in their midst? Pandith doesn't just ask the question but provides-for the first time-a concrete, detailed, and engaging answer." -- <strong>Juliette Kayyem, former Assistant Secretary at the Department of Homeland Security and Faculty Chair of the Homeland Security Project at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government</strong> "Farah Pandith offers a much-needed critique of nearly two decades of failed American efforts to counter violent extremist ideology. More important, she charts a thoughtful alternative course that demands the attention of policy makers and practitioners in the United States and around the world." -- <strong>William J. Burns, President of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, former U.S. Deputy Secretary of State, and former U.S. Ambassador to Russia and Jordan<u1:p></u1:p></strong> "Essential for anyone who cares about security and the resilience of democratic values." -- <strong>Leon E. Panetta, former U.S. Secretary of Defense and former CIA Director</strong> "As former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO, I was on the front lines of the war against violent extremists....I wish I'd had Farah Pandith's groundbreaking book then, and I hope that everyone concerned with stopping extremist violence and destruction will read it now." -- <strong>Admiral James Stavridis, U.S. Navy (Ret.), former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO</strong> "When the threat of terrorism triggers our instincts to lock ourselves down or shout each other down, Ms. Pandith tells us to suit up and open up. Having survived from the frontlines of bureaucratic infighting, she optimistically calls us to be outgoing." -- <strong>Matthew Barzun, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom and Sweden and former Chief Strategy Officer at CNET Networks</strong> "No one knows more about the appeal of ideology on Muslim youth than Farah Pandith....I wish I'd had How We Win as a resource during my critical leadership efforts against Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and the Islamic State." -- <strong>General John R. Allen, U.S. Marine Corps (Ret.), former Commander of the NATO International Security Assistance Force and U.S. Forces
