In the wake of the September 11 attacks, President George W. Bush drew a line in the sand, saying, “Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists.” Since 9/11, many counterterrorism partners have been both “with” and “against” the United States, helping it in some areas and hindering it in others. Making the most of these partnerships is fundamental to the success of any U.S. counterterrorism strategy. Yet what the United States can reasonably expect from its counterterrorism partners―and how to get more out of them―remain too little understood.

In With Us and Against Us, Stephen Tankel provides a theoretically rich and policy-relevant toolkit for assessing and improving counterterrorism cooperation, devising strategies for mitigating risks, and getting the most out of difficult partnerships. Stephen Tankel is a professor at American University and adjunct senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security.

Tom Bowman, National Public Radio's Pentagon reporter, will interview Dr. Tankel about his new book.

With Us and Against Us: How America’s Partners Help and Hinder the War on Terror will be on sale before and after the event. Dr. Tankel will be available to sign copies following his conversation with Mr. Bowman.
