WASHINGTON RULES America's Path to Permanent War

by | Read by Sean Runnette

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Andrew Bacevich takes issue with such actions as the Bay of Pigs invasion, the Vietnam War, President Bush's strategy in Iraq, and President Obama's strategy in Afghanistan, seeing both parties as supporters of the federal government as a militaristic industry. The former soldier's words are voiced by Sean Runnette in a hard-driving, often angry or sarcastic narration, with the occasional shift to gentleness to hit home a point. Bacevich has developed an opinionated worldview, and he shares that view strongly in both his rhetoric and research. While Bacevich's words will likely reach only listeners who already share his opinions, his book provides much to think about. Listeners across the political spectrum will find his words disconcerting. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2010]
