THE AMERICAN WAY OF WAR Guided Missiles, Misguided Men, and a Republic in Peril

by | Read by David Drummond

Contemporary Culture • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Author Eugene Jarecki, a dramatic and documentary filmmaker, investigates the war policies of many U.S. administrations, relying on diverse sources for his information. Written more for political gurus than general readers, the book criticizes U.S. governments from George, the first, to George, the forty-third. David Drummond narrates without emotion, without frills, and without spark. He pauses for quotations but can't feign involvement. Because the disorganized narrative never flows in a single direction or stays at a single season, the transition from the written word to audio offers little enhancement. The audio production merely allows the convenience of listening. Perhaps it's because such a chimera of ideas needs scrutiny and contemplation without haste.
