Praise

Editors’ Choice, NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

*


“Ambitious and valuable”
–WASHINGTON POST

Unger should be commended for contributing to the debate… persuasive.”
— SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

“Unger’s broad indictment of defense policy—bipartisan if not nonpartisan—is sure to spark considerable and worthy debate.”
— PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

An important perspective about opportunities missed and roads not taken”
— KIRKUS REVIEWS

Thoughtful work for your smart political readers.
— LIBRARY JOURNAL

“David Unger’s informative, historical and incisive narrative clearly illustrates that that the challenge of upholding democratic principles is a constantly evolving challenge for even the most mature of democracies and makes clear that there is no trade-off between security and the respect for human rights and civil liberties.”
— Kofi Annan, Secretary-General of the United Nations (1997-2006)
 
“Like a skilled surgeon, David Unger lays bare the pathologies that have disfigured U. S. national security policy over the course of many decades.  The result is a thoughtful, judicious, immensely readable, and vitally important book.
— Andrew J. Bacevich, author of WASHINGTON RULES and THE LIMITS OF POWER
