Annotation The gravest decision in a democracy is the one to go to war. In a book that brings a command of history to the most urgent of contemporary questions, the author explores the war in Iraq, the presidency, and the future of democracy. Describing unilateralism as "the oldest doctrine in American history," he nevertheless warns of the dangers posed by the fatal turn in U.S. policy from deterrence and containment to preventive war. 2004.
