The U.S. spends more on the military than the entire rest of the world combined and maintains 300,000 troops abroad in an “empire of bases.” Andrew Bacevich says now is the time to examine the Washington consensus on national security. He argues that national priorities must shift from fixing Afghanistan to fixing Detroit.

With incisive analysis, Bacevich exposes the preconceptions, biases, and habits that underlie this pervasive faith in military might, especially the notion that overwhelming superiority will oblige others to accommodate America's needs and desires, including cheap oil, cheap credit, or cheap consumer goods. Bacevich argues that we must reconsider the principles which shape American policy in the world and acknowledge that fixing Afghanistan should not take precedence over fixing Detroit. As we enter a period when our militarism has become both unaffordable and increasingly dangerous, replacing this Washington consensus is crucial to America's future.
