Summary
"Infused with Jonathan Schell's characteristic compassion, these meditations were incisions into the received wisdoms of post-9/11 America. Drawing from historical precedents to comment on the current political and cultural situation, Schell presents compelling arguments against American's imperial ambitions, explores the dangers posed by the resurgence of nuclear proliferation, and argues that the public can and must hold their leaders accountable for their actions."--[book jacket]
