Heads in the Sand Book Reviews
Matthew Yglesias published Heads in the Sand: How the Republicans Screw Up Foreign Policy and Foreign Policy Screws Up the Democrats way back in April but some of the reviews are just now hitting the ‘net.
Jim Henley‘s is in Reason and entitled, “Between Iraq and a Soft Place – Democrats counter with a kinder, gentler interventionism.” My own, which hit the print edition of The New Individualist weeks ago, is now available online under the title “Politics at the Water’s Edge.”
Interestingly, our takes are quite similar: The book is provocative, well-written, and does a good job synthesizing recent political history but fails at its prescriptive goals by glossing over the shared flaws of the neoconservatism he hates and the liberal interventionism he champions.
Both reviews — and the book itelf — are worth a look.
