Summary
  • "The Pornography of Power offers a compelling argument for rethinking America's foreign policy, cutting defense spending, and reducing our military presence in the world."--BOOK JACKET
  • Journalist Scheer examines the expansion of the United States' military presence throughout the world, our insane nuclear strategy, the immorality of corporations profiting in Iraq, and the arrogance of our foreign policy. Although Scheer is a liberal, his view echoes that of former Republican president Eisenhower, who, in his farewell speech to the American people, spoke prophetically about need to guard against the growing influence of the military-industrial complex. In George W. Bush's America, politicians like Ike and Richard Nixon seem like prudent centrists. The views of libertarians, liberals, and pacifists are often overlooked or ignored by America's mainstream media. This book is the culmination of a respected journalist's efforts to change the terms of debate.--From publisher description
