In the sobering aftermath of America’s invasion of Iraq, Eugene Jarecki, the creator of the award-winning documentary Why We Fight, launches a penetrating and revelatory inquiry into how forces within the American political, economic, and military systems have come to undermine the carefully crafted structure of our republic—upsetting its balance of powers, vastly strengthening the hand of the president in taking the nation to war, and imperiling the workings of American democracy. This is a story not of simple corruption but of the unexpected origins of a more subtle and, in many ways, more worrisome disfiguring of our political system and society.

The American Way of War is a deeply thought provoking study of how America reached a historic crossroads and of how recent excesses of militarism and executive power may provide an opening for the redirection of national priorities.

    " I guess I was expecting something different. I found it to be a bit disjointed and dry. Will try reading it later as the subject matter is quite interesting. "

    " In the interest of self-promotion I feel obligated to give this four stars. The writing itself does not rank that, the content and thesis absolutely does. "
