Over the past decade, America has been waging a new kind of war against the financial networks of rogue regimes, proliferators, terrorist groups, and criminal syndicates. In this book, Juan Zaratea€”who, along with a dedicated group of Treasury officials, designed and implemented this strategy and capabilitya€”takes readers behind the scenes to explain in unprecedented detail how this group redefined the Treasury's role, and used its unique powers, relationships, and reputation to apply financial pressure against America's enemies. This new brand of financial power leveraged the private sector and created an international financial environment in which the private sector's bottom line dovetailed directly with U.S. national security interestsa€” with the goal of isolating rogues from the legitimate financial system. Treasury and its tools soon became critical in all the central geopolitical challenges facing the United States, including terrorism, proliferation, and regimes in North Korea, Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Cuba. There has been very little written about the unique story of the U.S.'s financial warfare campaigns.
