Sommario:
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.

Abstract:

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

da whisner (Utenti WorldCat. Pubblicazioni 2012-08-19) Eccellente Link permanente

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.
