Summary
"Many books about international politics since September Eleventh contend that either everything changed or nothing changed on that fateful day. This book identifies what is new about contemporary politics but also how what is new has been exploited in ways that are all too familiar. It compares recent political events with other crises in the history of modern politics - political and intellectual, ranging from seventeenth-century England to Weimar Germany - to argue that the risks of the present crisis have been exaggerated, manipulated and misunderstood."--BOOK JACKET
