Description

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.

Reviews

'Robert Scheer is one of the best reporters of our time' - Joan Didion 'Scheer's prose is as clear as his evidence; readers will be galvanized by his incendiary account' - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
