The Limits of Power

The first presidential debate is over and I still had PBS on the tv when Bill Moyers comes on with a very impressive guest: Andrew Bacevich. I have been completely sucked into this interview with this person who has such a deep and clear understanding of history and what it can teach us about where our country has ended up at this moment in time. I agree with so much of what he is saying, especially that we have created an “Imperial Presidency” over the past 40 years. I was surprised to find out that Bacevich is a conservative. Educated at West Point, with a PdD in History from Princeton, he served in both Vietnam and the Gulf War

Watch Bill Moyers’ interview with Andrew Bacevich.

Read Andrew Bacevich’s new book, The Limits of Power.
