The Wall Street Journal described him as a man who “saw the world as it really was” and spoke “with moral clarity about it,” With no-holds-barred candor, this veteran of three Republican administrations, provides a thought-provoking perspective on international affairs. During his United Nations tenure, no matter what the security challenge—preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, pushing Syria out of Lebanon or successfully pressing for sanctions against North Korea's nuclear tests— Bolton remained stalwart in his defense of the economic and security interests of the U.S.
He consistently projected unwavering support for Israel. This advocate for human rights engineered the Security Council’s approval of 22,500 U.N. peacekeepers in Darfur. He authored Surrender Is Not an Option - Defending American Interests at Home and Abroad.
