Professor Bracken is a leading expert in global competition and the strategic application of technology in business and defence. He has devoted his research and teaching to developing solutions for senior management as it deals with rapidly changing strategic developments under conditions of intense uncertainty. At Yale he designed and teaches the new MBA required course on Problem Framing, which uses scenario techniques and alternative futures to navigate and create new value in a turbulent business environment. The tools in this course are applied to business cases in private equity, technology, energy, and political risk. Bracken is considered an expert in private equity and his analyses offers rich insights to his students — both in the classroom and the boardroom. Bracken also teaches Business, Government, and Globalization, which examines the multinational corporation's strategy and structure under globalization; and Strategy, Technology, and War which develops technology and innovation landscapes for business and defence. Professor Bracken is rated as the best teacher in Yale's executive education programs. He has taught in corporate education programs in the U.S. and around the world. He is a consultant to private equity funds, accounting, and insurance companies as well as to various parts of the U.S. Government. He often leads business war games for companies facing new challenges, and recently ran a game on the competitive evolution of the European asset management industry. A member of the Council on Foreign Relations, he serves on the Chief of Naval Operations Executive Panel, the Transformation Advisory Group of the U.S. Joint Forces Command, as well as advising other parts of the Government and National Academy of Sciences Task Forces. At Yale he is a Fellow of Silliman College and a member of the Elizabethan Club. Before joining the Yale faculty, Professor Bracken was on the senior staff of the Hudson Institute for ten years, where he led the management consulting arm of the Institute. Bracken grew up in Philadelphia, and he enjoys golf, dude ranching, and ham radio.

"Politicians tell us it is a dangerous world but promise absolute security. Responsible policymakers, however, have to move beyond platitudes and learn to cope with risk and uncertainty. This volume forces the reader to think - and ought to be required reading for the next administration."
Nikolas K. Gvosdev, Editor, The National Interest

"An innovative and refreshing book. By applying concepts of risk management to the study of international relations, Managing Strategic Surprise not only makes an important intellectual contribution, but also advances new ways of thinking about mainstream foreign policy challenges."
Charles A. Kupchan, Georgetown University and Council on Foreign Relations, author of The End of the American EraI

"A superb collection of our best thought leaders and a welcome return of academia to the critical discussion of how to think about strategic surprise in the 21st Century. The authors thoughtfully capture the opportunities of risk management and its associated analytical paradigm as the next generation process to contend with strategic surprise. Of considerable note for further review is the suggestion that the United States has a competitive advantage in information technology and agile military response which could potentially serve as the framework for a successful interactive process to prevent strategic surprise. A must read for all those who seek to integrate risk management and risk assessment into an effective process to prevent strategic surprise for generations to come."
Kenneth A. Minihan, Lieutenant General, United States Air Force (Ret) and Former Director, National Security Agency

"Not still an art, not yet a science we have much to learn about understanding and responding to strategic surprise. From finance to government, strategic surprise has been our most challenging and often our most opportune phenomenon. This book has more enlightenment per page on the subject; it should be read by all of you whose lives, jobs and fortunes depend on fathoming surprise - almost all of us!"
Thomas R. Pickering, Former Under Secretary of State and Career Ambassador of the United States

"The authors stare such horrors as nuclear proliferation and mass terrorism in the face and, rather than shuddering, analyze, parse, balance, and judge. Conclusion: don't try to predict the future - it's about insight, not numbers. Bravo, Bravo, Bravo."
R. James Woolsey, Venture Partner, VantagePoint, and former Director of Central Intelligence

"Managing Strategic Surprise is a masterpiece. Cutting across a wide swath of academic disciplines, the book shows how risk management approaches used everywhere from Fortune 500 companies to environmental agencies can improve US national security policy. Whether you're a senior policymaker, a graduate student, or a concerned citizen, this book will change the way you think about post-9/11 threats and how to combat them."
Amy B. Zegart, Associate Professor of Public Policy at the University of California, Los Angeles, and author of Spying Blind: The CIA, the FBI, and the Origins of 9/11

"In a volatile, globalized world, we worry about surprises. We fret over how to predict low probability - high risk events. Since no one has a crystal ball, engineers have worked on methods for managing unpredictable risks. But the use of 'risk screens', now so widely accepted in the private sector has been largely ignored in the far more consequential realm of international politics. To offer help, Bracken, Bremmer, and Gordon have assembled a world-class team of contributors to outline the methods and show how to apply them in international policymaking. This is a huge service in an area where the need is so great yet the methods and professional training are so weak. Aided by these excellent essays, readers will find that these ideas are practical too."
Philip Zelikow, Former Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission

The Rise of Asian Military Power and the Second Nuclear Age

Yale political science professor Paul Bracken suggests that the second nuclear age offers many more risks than the first one, the main problem being not that the United States is getting weaker, but that Asia is growing stronger. China looks increasingly aggressive, India and Pakistan have gone nuclear, and more countries — such as Iran, Syria, and North Korea — are waiting in the wings.

"Proliferation of modern weaponry is driven not by anything that happens in Washington, but by the national strategies set in Beijing, Delhi, and Tehran," writes Bracken. This has disturbing implications: "Since the War of 1812, only one country in modern history has ever been able to mount a convincing threat to the territory of the United States — the Soviet Union. Now there will be many," he says.

Going far beyond the stale debate over engagement versus containment, Bracken argues that the West — especially the United States — must prepare all-new national security strategies to meet the emerging realities of the 21st century: "The long era in which Asia was penetrated by outside powers is coming to a close. An age of Western control is ending, and the challenge is not how to shape what is happening but how to adapt to it." Fire in the East is an outstanding book written by a wise man for a nonspecialist audience, but one so provocative and important that the experts can't ignore it.
