17 thoughts on “The Handbook of 5GW: Who Gets Review Copies?”

  1. Good question. Some of the usual suspects come to mind (Barnett, for instance) although I wonder if the review copies should be sent further afield.

    Max Boot might be a good candidate.

  2. I would suggest a copy to…

    1) Glenn Reynolds / Instapundit. Even if he doesn’t review, he will note that he received it, and that will generate people looking at it on Amazon.com.

    2) Brent at Covert Radio. The audience is interetse3d in what we are interested in. I was interviewed once on the show about 5GW. I’d like a copy to go to the host and maybe then Dan and a few of the submit.

    3) I’d sure like the Marine Corps Gazette to review it, given there other 4GW/5GW stuff.

  3. PSlog,

    Somehow it seems fitting that 5GW in America might fit with the libertarian philosophy. (Lowercase, at least for now.)

    Koch Bros.?

    In any case, I might be blowing smoke.

    Perhaps a copy of the book ought to be sent to the White House, given that the White House has visited D5GW, actually using the search term “Dreaming 5GW.”

    On the other hand, that might be a waste of dead tree.

  4. CGW…yuo might be onto something. Maybe the small L libertarian-ish-ians (that is a nsty word/idea construct) are finally learning. I noticed there are a bunch of books recent out (or soon to be) taking the Alinsky method and restating it for the libertarian-ish-ians.

    I wonder if instead sending a copy to the left, are there any particular liberal/left types who should be targeted with White House access. Maybe General Jones? Maybe somebody lower on the NSC staff?

    Anybody know of any lefty mil-blogs off-hand?

    Anybody know of any lefty history blogs off-hand? How abouty Progressive Historian?

  5. Maybe the Koch bros are proto/wannabee puppetmasters. I guess it is time to trace their activities to see. Maybe, a post comparing/contrasting them to Soros.

  6. PurpleSlog,

    There is a certain vein running through some libertarian philosophy which not only rejects a federal Overseer but supports a very strong independence in and for individuals. It is granular. Coming from such a p.o.v., I can see where the idea of 5GW might appeal to those libertarians wanting to influence the larger system but without doing so through a top-down, federal approach.

    There are certainly some problems with some self-identified libertarians/Libertarians, however.
