“Andrew Bacevich speaks truth to power, no matter who’s in power, which may be why those of both the left and right listen to him.” – Bill Moyers

In a vivid, incisive analysis, Washington Rules: America’s Path to Permanent War presents the origins of this consensus, forged exactly when American power was at its height. Bacevich succinctly exposes the biases, preconceptions, and habits that underlie America’s pervasive faith in military might, especially the notion that overwhelming military superiority will oblige others to accommodate our needs and desires – whether for cheap oil, cheap credit, or cheap consumer goods. But American global might is faltering badly, and Bacevich insists it is now unaffordable and increasingly dangerous.

“…Bacevich delivers precisely what the Republic has so desperately needed: an analysis of America’s woes that…gets at the heart of the delusions that have crippled the country’s foreign policy for decades.” —Mark Danner
