Summary
  • "George W. Bush has revived the narrow nationalism of the Republicans who rejected the League of Nations in the 1920s. At the urging of his neoconservative supporters, he has revived the old, discredited imperialist strategy of attempting to unilaterally overthrow regimes deemed unfriendly by his administration. Bush rejects the role of international institutions and agreements in curbing terrorists, slowing global pollution, and containing potential threats. In The Folly of Empire, John B. Judis pits Woodrow Wilson's arguments against those of George W. Bush and the neoconservatives."
  • "Judis draws contrasts between the Bush administration's policies, especially with regard to Iraq, and those of every administration from Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman through George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton. The final message is a sobering one: Leaders ignore history's lessons at their peril."--Jacket
