Devastating Society: The Neo-conservative Assault on Democracy and Justice

by Bernd Hamm (editor)
£17.99   paperback  Pluto Press (2005)

Devastating Society: The Neo-conservative Assault on Democracy and Justice by Bernd Hamm (editor) The contributors to this book include some of the leading dissenting writers and thinkers of our time, including Noam Chomsky, William Blum and Michael Chossudovsky. United in their opposition to the neo-conservatism underpinning America's current political strategies, the contributors offer a grounded critique of the real impact that these policies make, at home and abroad.
 
Starting with a close analysis of the Bush administration and the neo-conservative hold on power in Washington, they move on to a broader historical analysis. They set today's topical issues in the context of what they see as a gradual shift towards the right in American politics, and the creeping corporatisation of American society.
 
They show that September 11 was used by the Bush administration to clamp down on civil liberties at home and to step up an aggressive line in foreign policy. The impact on American society, and societies elsewhere, has been deeply damaging.
 
Ranging over this and other topics including the US economy, corporate crime and anti-environmentalism, this book is ideal for anyone who wants a critical introduction to current affairs issues, set within the broader context of America's history of foreign interventions and global capitalism.
