Über diesen Titel
Book by Raskin, MarcusFrom Booklist:
Institute for Policy Studies cofounder Raskin--critic since his Kennedy Administration days of a "national security state" (he coined the term) that undermines democracy and misallocates resources--is one of the most penetrating, insightful (though currently unfashionable) political philosophers in the U.S. In a dozen long essays on the state of the nation and the world as the millennium nears, the analysis and arguments are more accessible than in Raskin's more academic publications. The essays are organized around processes in which he urges small-d democrats to engage: seeing ("The Vision Thing," the JFK assassination); believing (the collapse of the U.S.S.R., the nature and role of science, spying in a multipolar world); hoping (the U.N., "Sliding Out of the Cold War" ); trying (the Clinton administration, urban housing issues); and remembering (the Nuremberg trials, anti-Semitism, "The Fall and Rise of the Left Project" ). Make no mistake: even a relatively accessible Raskin is dense and demanding, but libraries whose political philosophy collections are heavy on Gingrich and Will (or Hayek and Friedman) should include Raskin as well. Mary Carroll
