Product description

Review

“A thoughtful look at the legacy of two increasingly unpopular wars, focusing especially on the human toll.”—Political Bookworm blog
(Political Bookworm blog 2010-03-22)

“[This book] gives us a well structured understanding of a seemingly chaotic legacy, and answers many of the innumerable unanswered questions. It is an honest and formidable attempt at understanding one of the darkest periods in the history of America and the world."—Ramzy Baroud, Palestine Chronicle
(Ramzy Baroud Palestine Chronicle 2010-05-27)

“Tripathi has done a superb job in addressing the significance of G.W. Bush’s Sept. 11, 2001 declaration of unreserved violence and political imprudence against the world. Tripathi’s successful approach is largely owed to his ability to locate the book within a most suitable historical and intellectual, as opposed to purely political or event-driven context.”—Salt Spring News
(Salt Spring News 2010-06-25)

"Finally, a pithy critical assessment of the disastrous Bush foreign policy legacy written in a highly readable form that is knowledgeable, persuasive, and best of all forward looking."—Richard Falk, Milbank Professor of International Law Emeritus, Princeton University, and distinguished visiting professor of global studies, University of California, Santa Barbara
(Richard Falk 2009-09-14)

“Western politicians seem to misunderstand their role--which is to make their society, and the world in general, safer, not simply start wars against those they don’t like. Tripathi collates the facts and demonstrates how the Bush administration spent vast sums of money making our world far more dangerous. This story is critically important because we cannot learn from history if we do not know what that history is.”—Clive Stafford Smith, Director, Reprieve, and author of Bad Men: Guantanamo and the Secret Prisons
(Clive Stafford Smith 2009-07-24)

“Deepak Tripathi provides a clear-eyed analysis of how George W. Bush’s foreign policy, especially his wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, have made us more vulnerable to terrorism. A must-read for all who wish to reverse the dangerous Bush legacy.”—Marjorie Cohn, immediate past president, National Lawyers Guild; professor, Thomas Jefferson School of Law; and coauthor, Rules of Disengagement: The Politics and Honor of Military Dissent
(Marjorie Cohn 2009-09-13)

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