Interview with Professor Andrew Bacevich (author of "The Limits of Power")

In today's sea of media fed mucho blah blah
sober, truly insightful, accomplished voices are hard to come by.

Andrew Bacevich is such a voice.

I came across the following interview recently and feel it belongs among my collection of educational links.

So far, I've only read his Limits of Power: The End of American Exceptionalism (2008) ~~ the man makes more sense than any politician I've heard lately. This interview is a good introduction to that book.

Other books by Bacevich:
American Empire: The Realities and Consequences of US Diplomacy (2002),
The New American Militarism: How Americans are Seduced by War (2005)


The Bill Moyers Journal
interview with Andrew J. Bacevich
August 15, 2008

"Is an imperial presidency destroying what America stands for? Bill Moyers sits down with history and international relations expert and former US Army Colonel Andrew J. Bacevich who identifies three major problems facing our democracy: the crises of economy, government and militarism, and calls for a redefinition of the American way of life."
