Recommends it for: 9/11 writing afficionados
This book contains a short thesis about national defense in the U.S. made by Elaine Scarry, and several responses to her thesis made by several other people. Scarry's thesis is (very uncharacteristically) sloppily argued. The responses by the other people are either ass-kissing and therefore boring, or attacking, but even when they're attacking, you don't learn anything new.
