"The war in Iraq has been a victory of moral fervor over moral clarity. The first without the second is a curse on itself. James Carroll brings to bear-I hope not too late-the moral clarity we so badly need." -Garry WillsWith the words "this Crusade, this war on terror," George W. Bush defined the purpose of his presidency. And just as promptly, James Carroll-"Boston Globe" columnist, bestselling author, and respected moral authority-began a week-by-week argument with the administration. In powerful, passionate bulletins, Carroll dissected the President's exploitation of the nation's fears, invocations of a Christian mission, and efforts to overturn America's traditional relations-with other nations and its own citizens. Combining clear moral consciousness, an acute sense of history, and a real-world grasp of the unforgiving demands of politics, "Crusade" is a compelling call for the rescue of America's noblest traditions.
