    In this provocative new book, Andrew Bacevich warns of a dangerous dual obsession that has taken hold of Americans, conservatives and liberals alike. It is a marriage of militarism and utopian ideology - of unprecedented military might wed to a blind faith in the universality of American values. This perilous union, Bacevich argues, commits Americans to a futile enterprise, turning the US into a crusader state with a self-proclaimed mission of driving history to its final destination: the world-wide embrace of the American ...

Explains why we are there

by charger on Dec 31, 2009

I view this book as a companion piece to Bacevich's Limits of Power. The New American Militarism is a scathingly honest appraisal of America's use of military power. The book begins with the Vietnam war and continues to our present day involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. Bacevich offers a balanced and non partisan assessment of the underlying assumptions that have led America into a state of constant warfare. He provides a detailed history of the rise of neoconservatives and their influence on our present day military policy. This is an important book that should be read by all Americans whatever their political ideology.
