Description

George Soros made billions anticipating seismic changes in the financial markets and has used that money to try and change the world. In this book he brings that commitment to the subject that has preoccupied him since 2001: the state of America. He looks at the fatal flaws not merely of the current Administration - with whom his antagonism is well documented - but with the wider American view of the world. The 'stateless statesman', uninhibited by the need to temper his message to suit partisan politics, here delivers his most forceful and penetrating description of how the country that should provide a beacon for good governance around the world has lost direction - such that it believes its own rhetoric and myth-making, in defiance of the facts that will shape all our futures. Soros insists that 'America must undergo a change of heart'. And if we're looking for somewhere to start, he says, America had better begin by renouncing the 'feel-good' misconceptions implicit in the War on Terror.show more
