Read in April, 2008

Here is another gem in Kevin Phillips' analysis of current events, in the context of American history, and indeed Western history as a whole.

Once again this book is very enjoyable, and thoroughly documented, and provides a fresh, logical, and consistent analysis of the events at stake. It also helps with a look ahead to possible ways out of the mess, though it truly makes you wonder who would want to be president if they understood what is going on.

A good read. Some reviewers seem to be bothered by the references to Phillips' earlier books, but I find that only helpful in understanding his train of thought and the development in his position.
