A wise and blistering attack on the Pentagon and all those who profit from wars and defence spending, by one of America's greatest progressive journalists
Called ''one of the best reporters of our time'' by Joan Didion, Robert Scheer brings a lifetime of journalistic acuity to his impassioned call for a new way of thinking about national defense.
He describes the useless weapons we manufacture; the quiet expansion of our military presence throughout the world; the insanity of our nuclear strategy; the immorality of corporations profiting in Iraq; and the arrogance of our foreign policy.
Scheer's perspective is wholeheartedly liberal. He draws upon thirty years of experience to prove why progressive solutions will work.
