WASHINGTON RULES by Andrew J Bacevich


WASHINGTON RULES by Andrew J Bacevich NEW audiobook 7 CDs Unabridged. Original factory sealed box. Z37

For the last half century, as presidents have come and gone, the basic edifice of U.S. national security policy has remained unchanged: a worldwide military presence; armed forces configured not for defense, but for global power projection; and a penchant for inter-ventionism; whether overt or covert; anywhere at anytime. From the age of Harry Truman to the era of Barack Obama, this triad has remnained sacrosanct.
In a vivid, incisive analysis, Andrew J Bacevich succinctly identifies the origins of this consensus, forged at a moment when American power was at it height. He explains why the consensus persists despite a record of recurring failure. He describres the consequences of those failures and proposes a radically different approach to national security policy - one with the potential to check the nation's descent into a condition of war without end.
Time has expired on the American Century. Not changing is not an option. This is the moment Bacevich argues, to reassess America's approach to the world - to reject militarism and to acknowledge that fixing Detroit should take precedence over fixing Afghanistan. Replacing the Washingto consensus with a new set of authentically American national security principles may yet offer the key to the country's salvation. Z37
