Eichmann on the Potomac: The Psychopathology of Drone Warfare (Counterpunch)

Eichmann on the Potomac: The Psychopathology of Drone Warfare (Counterpunch) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Pollack is the Hannah Arendt of our time."—Gabriel Kolko

A searing indictment of the Barack Obama administration and the unchecked growth of executive power, Eichmann on the Potomac is a political and psychological profile of the contemporary imperial mindset. Norman Pollack's book places Obama's drone warfare program and targeted assassination plan into historical and legal context, showing how the routinization of assassination, aerial surveillance, and undeclared warfare shreds the constitutional limitations on unrestrained executive power.

Norman Pollack is a widely published historian, lecturer, and Guggenheim fellow. His previous books include The Just Polity and The Populist Response to Industrial America.

Synopsis:

A "signature strike" against the government's most terrifying weapon at home and abroad.
