Description
Addresses the hard questions of individual freedom versus national security that are on the minds of Americans of all political stripes. It brings together the pivotal events, leaders, policies, and fateful decisions--often pathbreaking, more often ending in folly--that have kept citizens on a roller-coaster ride from Franklin D. Roosevelt to George W. Bush but in fact have subverted our constitutional government from its founding. "You reach the inescapable conclusion," the authors write, "that the United States is a warrior nation, has been addicted to war from the start, and is able to sustain its warfare habit only by mugging American taxpayers and believing in its mission as God's chosen."
