Abstract:

"Selling US Wars is a collection of essays by renowned experts from around the world. It examines the excuses for war - nuclear weapons, terrorism, "failed states," drugs, humanitarian intervention, and democracy - and analyzes the pretexts for the US invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as Washington's aggressive policies in Colombia, Palestine, and Iran. It gets behind the subterfuges to expose how Washington's spin-doctors worked to present its wars as humane, lawful, and necessary to keep Americans safe - and why the campaigns sometimes succeeded."--Jacket.
