  • The Irony of American Historyby Reinhold Niebuhr; Andrew J. Bacevich

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 22.00

And we should be humble and modest in our belief we can eliminate those things. But we shouldn’t use that as an excuse for cynicism and inaction. I take away . . . the sense we have to make... more...

  • The Spiritual-Industrial Complexby Jonathan P. Herzog

    Oxford University Press 2011; US$ 26.99

    This fascinating volume argues that American leaders in the early Cold War considered the conflict to be profoundly religious, that they saw Communism not as godless but as a religion fighting faith with faith.
