Required reading

October 26, 2008 Jordana

I’m not much of a political science person, and what strikes me as a clear and honest view of our nation’s current situation tends to scare me. This book didn’t help any. Go out and read it immediately; Bacevich provides an unsparing historical view of precedents and supposedly exceptional events that laid the foundation for any and all crises we are experiencing. He doesn’t go easy on anybody, really, from members of both political parties (past, present and hopeful) to the individual American citizen. I don’t know if I agree with everything Bacevich has to say, but his perspective is an important one to consider.
