Description
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.
