Synopses & Reviews
Wendell Berry and David James Duncan assess the moral, economic, ecological,
and democratic ramifications of the first new national security strategy in
fifty years. By turns informative, honest, and emotionally crushing, they
speak to the collective conscience of our nation: "What does real security
require of us? What does true patriotism require of us? What does freedom
require of us?"
