Synopsis

The Bubble of American Supremacy The Costs of Bush's War in Iraq by George Soros

In The Bubble of American Supremacy, George Soros, long known as the world's only private citizen with a foreign policy, combines his razor-sharp sense of economic trends with his tireless advocacy for open societies to come up with a workable, and severely critical, analysis of the Bush administration's overreaching, militaristic foreign policy. As the philanthropist Soros has said, he knows a thing or two about supporting democracies abroad and this ain't how you do it. Soros sounded a loud and early warning bell as America prepared to enter Iraq. Now, following a successful hardcover and a lengthy political season in which he devoted much of his energy to opposing the administration, this paperback edition of The Bubble of American Supremacy will be updated to suggest a way out of the wilderness-offering a passionate and relevant critique of President Bush as he enters a second term.

Reviews

(Soros's) strength is in grasping the big picture, determining how he can make a difference and succeeding in improving the world . Washington Post Book World A spirited, polemical book from a man who wants passionately to defend American values from the threat of the careless arrogance embodied by the Bush administration... This is a timely, urgent, essential critique, offering a necessary corrective to prevent a catastrophic collapse of American global influence . Joseph Stiglitz, author of Globalization and its Discontents
