The Limits of Power: The End of American Exceptionalism

By: Andrew J. Bacevich

Publisher: Metropolitan Books, Henry Holt & Co.

According to Bacevich, a conservative historian and former military officer, we are all complicit in the current economic, political, and military crises our nation is now facing. He claims that our demand for resources, primarily oil, has condoned the wars which have changed our military into another economic enterprise. He claims that the end of the Cold War gave way to unprecedented American interventionism, with fighting in Panama and the Persian Gulf, occupying Bosnia and Haiti, charging into Kosovo and Afghanistan, and bombing Sudan, culminating in the endless War on Terror perpetrated by an Imperial Presidency. Bacevich warns us to wise up.
