Publisher's Summary

Long known as "the world's only private citizen with a foreign policy", George Soros combines his razor-sharp sense of economic trends with his passionate advocacy for open societies and decency in world politics to come up with a workable, and severely critical, analysis of the Bush administration's overreaching, militaristic foreign policy. Soros believes that this administration's plans abroad come from the same sort of "bubble" psychology that afflicted our markets in the late 90s. They have used a real fact, our overwhelming military supremacy, to create a deluded worldview, that might makes right and that "you're either with us or against us", in the same way that the recent boom used a real fact, the growth in technology, to lead to a delusion, the "new economy".
Like the best of the books that have responded quickly to world events, The Bubble of American Supremacy, has a clear, intriguing, comprehensive thesis that makes necessary, and compelling, order of our seemingly disordered world.

Critic Reviews

"[An] intensely polemical but also succinct and well-reasoned book." (Los Angeles Times Book Review)
"Soros offers historical perspective, social theory, and his own keen observational skills to make his points. This may be the one anti-Bush book that reaches an audience beyond the Democratic amen corner." (Booklist)

Great perspective, solid facts

Of course Soros is a liberal. Conservative reactionarieis may call it "dumb", perhaps they should actually listen.

First half of the book is pre-election, but the facts are the same even though Bush won. A pleasure for us lefties, a review of the "why not" for others. The second half is Soros' world view of Open Societies, a more challenging listen, more controversial, forces you to develop your own opinion about what America actually stands for.

I recommend if you're a leftie or not.

Outdated alt-left political twiddle by author. Do not waste your time on this book
