Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

Beginning with his debut masterpiece, "The Naked and the Dead, "Norman Mailer has repeatedly told the truth about war. "Why Are We at War? "returns Mailer to the gravity of the battlefield and the grand hubris of the politicians who send soldiers there to die. First published in the early days of the Iraq War, "Why Are We at War? "is an explosive argument about the American quest for empire that still carries weight today. Scrutinizing the Bush administration's words and actions, Mailer unleashes his trademark moral rigor: "Because democracy is noble, it is always endangered. . . . To assume blithely that we can export democracy into any country we choose can serve paradoxically to encourage more fascism at home and abroad."
