Twilight of the American Century (Hardback)Andrew J. Bacevich (author)
- We can order this
Bacevich is the author of nearly a dozen books and contributes to a wide variety of publications, including Foreign Affairs, The Nation, Commonweal, Harper's, and the London Review of Books. His op-eds have appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal, among other newspapers. Prior to becoming an academic, he was a professional soldier. His experience as an Army officer informs his abiding concern regarding the misuse of American military power and the shortcomings of the U.S. military system. As a historian, he has tried to see the past differently, thereby making it usable to the present.
Bacevich combines the perspective of a scholar with the background of a practitioner. His views defy neat categorization as either liberal or conservative. He belongs to no "school." His voice and his views are distinctive, provocative, and refreshing. Those with a focus on political and cultural developments and who have a critical interest in America's role in the world will be keenly interested in this book.

"Bacevich is a prolific writer and academic, and policy-oriented scholars in diplomatic history, international relations, and security studies are well aware of the books he has published since 9/11. He speaks with the authority of an experienced practitioner as well as and academic theorist. But this collection will alert even experts in those fields to numerous essays, commentaries, op-eds, and blog posts he has produced over the past 15 years." - Walter McDougall, Alloy-Ansin Professor of International Relations, University of Pennsylvania
