Andrew J. Bacevich, ed.: The Short American Century

A Postmortem

Harvard University Press, 2012     Amazon.com

Book Description:

In February 1941, Henry Luce announced the arrival of “The American Century”. But that century – extending from World War II to the recent economic collapse – has now ended, victim of strategic miscalculation, military misadventures, and economic decline. Here some of America’s most distinguished historians place the century in historical perspective.

Reviews:

“Bracing and provocative.” Kirkus Review

“This collection of essays constitutes a how-to manual for people who sense something deeply wrong with the current bipartisan consensus on American power, but can’t quite articulate what it is.”  Nick Baumann, Commonweal

About the Editor:

Andrew J. Bacevich is Professor of International Relations and History at Boston University.
