Description

In The Bubble of American Supremacy, George Soros, long known as "the world's only private citizen with a foreign policy," combines his razor-sharp sense of economic trends with his tireless advocacy for open societies to come up with a workable, and severely critical, analysis of the Bush administration's overreaching, militaristic foreign policy. As the philanthropist Soros has said, he knows a thing or two about supporting democracies abroad and "this ain't how you do it. "Soros sounded a loud and early warning bell as America prepared to enter Iraq. Now, following a successful hardcover and a lengthy political season in which he devoted much of his energy to opposing the administration, this paperback edition of The Bubble of American Supremacy will be updated to suggest a way out of the wilderness-offering a passionate and relevant critique of President Bush as he enters a second term.show more

Review quote

"(Soros's) strength is in grasping the big picture, determining how he can make a difference and succeeding in improving the world". Washington Post Book World "A spirited, polemical book from a man who wants passionately to defend American values from the threat of the careless arrogance embodied by the Bush administration... This is a timely, urgent, essential critique, offering a necessary corrective to prevent a catastrophic collapse of American global influence". Joseph Stiglitz, author of Globalization and its Discontents"show more
