About this product
- DescriptionNow in paperback, this is the distinguished essayist's incisive critique of the Bush regime. Pretensions To Empire brings together Lewis Lapham's recent political commentaries from his National Magazine Award-winning Harper's Notebook column, beginning with the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 and culminating in Lapham's eloquent (and widely cited) case for the impeachment of George W. Bush.Written in the highly literate and assured style that has earned Lapham a large and devoted readership, the pieces in this collection provide t only a critical perspective on Bush's presidency - helping readers understand what happened and how it happened - but also vital new information and research, including a brilliant dissection of the Republican propaganda mill's octopus-like network and its role in the neoconservative ascent to power. As Lapham writes in the book's preface, these essays describe a march of folly, establish a record of moral incompetence and criminal intent, speak to the character of a government stupefied by its worship of money and blinded by its belief in miracles.
- Author BiographyLewis Lapham is editor of Lapham's Quarterly and also serves as editor emeritus and national correspondent for Harper's Magazine, which he edited for nearly 30 years.
