Description
Collecting political commentaries from his National Magazine Award–winning "Notebook" column in Harper's Magazine, editor emeritus Lewis Lapham here provides a critical perspective to the George W. Bush presidency and a dissection of the Republican propaganda mill's many-tentacled network and its role in the neoconservative ascent to power. As Lapham writes in the book's preface, "these essays describe a march of folly, establish a record of moral incompetence and criminal intent, speak to the character of a government stupefied by its worship of money and blinded by its belief in miracles."

"Lapham writes from a long and honorable tradition of speaking truth to power, and he is among the wittiest, most lucid stylists in the business.... None of his observations proves to be anything less than prophetic."—Boston Globe
