The Limits of Power

Author(s): Andrew J. Bacevich


America is at a turning point. Can it rebuild its reputation in 2009 and beyond?

In The Limits of Power, Andrew Bacevich, uniquely respected across the political spectrum, offers a fresh perspective on American illusions and looks to the future. He examines the myths that have governed US actions since 1945. Shared by policy-makers and citizens alike, these have culminated today in a triple crisis: an economy in disarray, an imperial-style government, and a military force engaged in endless war. This is a dazzling account of how and why America has taken the wrong path, by an acclaimed historian and former military officer.

'Bacevich writes with a passionate eloquence and moral urgency that make his book absolutely compelling.' -Mark Danner, author of Torture and Truthand The Secret Way to War
