Summary
"In this hard-hitting but pragmatic new critique of the Bush administration's foreign policy, Benjamin R. Barber "provides the first coherent and insightful response to the dubious and dangerous doctrines of preemptive attack and preventive war" (Senator Gary Hart). He shows how chosen "rogue states" have been made to stand in for terrorists too difficult to locate and destroy, and how the United States continues to support dictatorships in nations it regards as friends, while believing we can impose democracy on vanquished enemies at the barrel of a gun." "We cannot defeat fear with fear. Fear is terrorism's most powerful weapon. If we let ourselves be ruled by our imaginings of what "might" happen, we become instruments - willing or unwilling subjects - of "fear's empire.""--BOOK JACKET
