Лицевая обложка
Benjamin R. Barber lambasts the Bush administration's attempt to fight fear with fear in the age of terrorism and argues against the tendency to confuse the spread of McWorld - the seductive blend of free-market ideology and American brands - with the spread of democracy. containment and deterrence, and the dilemmas faced by America today. He rails against unilateralism, nuclear deterrence and reliance on military solutions, advocating instead an America that promotes co-operation, multilateralism, international law and pooled sovereignty.

Стр. 7 - Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! '' Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
Стр. 7 - Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events.
