In a statement issued through Threshold, Jindal called the book a work of history and "a call to arms" for the future as he reviews events ranging from the Louisiana Purchase to the Cold War. In a reference to the next presidential election, Threshold's announcement notes that the book offers "dramatic tales that demonstrate the courage, faith, and vision that we need in 2016."

Jindal has said he will decide whether to run after the state legislative session ends in June.

A previous Jindal book, "Leadership and Crisis," came out in 2010.
