Résumé:
In this book the author shows how deeply militarized our culture has become; how the role of the national security sector has shape-shifted and grown over the past century to the point of being financially unsustainable and confused in mission. Here she charts America's dangerous drift into a state of perpetual war. One of my favorite ideas is, never to keep an unnecessary soldier, Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1792.

Sobering and Important

de whisner (Utilisateur de WorldCat. Publication 2012-08-19) Excellent Permalien

Maddow persuasively argues that recent decades have seen the power to go to war drift away from Congress (where the Constitution places it) to the President.
