Description

In "an entertaining and iconoclastic fashion" (Philadelphia Inquirer), the celebrated historian reinterprets the traditions that have shaped U.S. foreign policy from 1776 to the present. "McDougall has written a lively and provocative book" (Wall Street Journal) that is "a rich study of the American experience" (Los Angeles Times).

Too bad G W Bush and his buddies had not read this before making that fatal area in Iraq after 9/11. I read it after a visit to the Lyndon Johnson library in Austin and his home further south. Listening to the recorded telephone conversations about the quagmire Vietnam was becoming.
