Product Description

Review

This is a painful, yet indispensable read for people of conscience throughout the world. Tripathi s book comes second to none in terms of narrating perhaps one of the darkest eras in U.S. history with reason and candor. A fantastic book the kind that you would read . . . and then want to read again.

About the Author

. Tripathi received his PhD from the University of Roehampton, where he is an honorary research fellow. He lives near London.

The True Picture May 24 2010
By Wilfred Cude - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Now that Karl Rove and Dick Cheney attempt to re-write the history of their own appalling misadventures, this book is most opportune. Concise, precise, lucid and ultimately quite compelling, Overcoming the Bush Legacy delineates the harsh facts we must face and the ugly situations we must remedy. In brief, the administration of George W. Bush has been a catastrophe without parallel in modern times, and addressing that catastrophe is a matter of daunting complexity. The strike at Afghanistan was intended to eliminate Bin Laden, oust the Taliban and install a democracy in that unhappy country. Today, Bin Laden lives, the nominally democratic government is unspeakably corrupt, the Taliban dominates much of Afghanistan and Pakistan, and has even struck back at New York City. The assault on Iraq was intended to neutralize weapons of mass destruction, remove Saddam Hussein and install a democracy in that unhappy country. Today, Hussein's death was purchased at the cost of a trillion American dollars, the death of thousands of coalition soldiers, the maiming of tens of thousands more, the death or maiming of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi citizens, the dispersal internally or internationally of millions more, the installation of a dysfunctional government, the reduction of an entire economic infrastructure to ruins, and continued unchecked murderous violence. And those WMD never existed. Far worse even than the aftermath of Vietnam, the current mess leaves the United States crippled militarily, economically and politically, its international reputation sullied and in tatters. Mr. Tripathi adroitly threads through the subtle tangles of misconception that produced this sad outcome, and he points the way to the far more difficult diplomatic maneuvers that constitute the only viable hope of improvement.

What's in the daily noose! June 27 2010
By Vagn Asbjorn Hansen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Sadly this book contributes no information that avid news readers have not accumulated, not does it put any tantalising questionmarks on what main stream news services try to convince us it the truth because told so often. It would be a well planned update for somebody who has slept 10 years.
As for overcoming the legacy there is no advice and no quantifying the hurt US has done to millions of people. They are still awaiting compensation. Obama could try paying up to victims in Iraq - then there would be at least one High Street (Mustansir Street I suppose) to help refloat the global econonomy.
