Dreaming War: Blood for Oil and the Cheney-Bush Junta

by Gore Vidal - £9.95  Clairview (2003)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781902636412 | ISBN 10: 1902636414

The explosive follow-up to Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace. A collection of provocative essays in which he confronts head-on the unelected & unconstitutional Cheney-Bush administration. In a centrepiece new essay on the events of 11th September, Vidal poses questions which will not go away. How much intelligence information did the security services really have in advance of the tragedy? Whose interests are served by the new US doctrine of pre-emptive attacks? In other essays Vidal unveils a counter-history that traces the origins of the USA's current imperial ambitions to the Truman Doctrine that gave birth to the National Security State. (Note: Not quite as current as the title makes it sound, as many of the essays are from the 1990s and deal with Clinton-era foreign policy, or with the Second World War and its aftermath - but still highly recommended!)
