Drift is an interesting history lesson that diagrams our country's gradual slide into perpetual war, and how we might change that going forward. It isn't a book about liberals vs. conservatives, to its credit. The book focuses on pivotal issues that have changed how we wage war such as interpretation of The War Powers Act, The Abrams Doctrine, Iran-Contra, Iraq, Afghanistan and private companies like Blackwater (Academi), to name a few topics. Whether you agree with Maddow's opinions or not, it is definitely worth your time to understand the topics she presents in this book.
