Description

George Bush's foreign policy is going to be one of, if not the key issue that will win or lose him the White House in November 2004. Already Senator Kerry - the Democratic front runner - has highlighted the danger of America being isolated from the rest of the world as it wields its military might. In this passionate and compelling critique, 'the world's only private citizen with a foreign policy', George Soros, combines his razor-sharp sense of political and economic trends with his forthright advocacy for decency in international relations to come up with a workable, and severely critical, analysis of the Bush administration's overreaching, militaristic foreign policy. Soros believes that the Bush administration's plans abroad come from the same sort of 'bubble' psychology that afflicted US markets in the late 1990s. They have used a real fact, American's overwhelming military supremacy, to create a deluded worldview in which 'might makes right' and 'you're either with us or against us'.show more
