Drift by Rachel Maddow

Glenn’s Non-Fiction Pick:

In “Drift” Maddow considers that in least some respects, the US military’s has lost its way and could stand for a tune-up. Her criticism doesn’t go nearly far enough as she primarily focuses on how decision-making power has concentrated to the executive branch of the political system. She is mostly silent in light of how US power has permeated countries around the globe to catastrophic ends. In this way she can surely be counted among the pro-military camp.  In short, I found the book lacking considerably.
