From the Publisher“Record has produced an excellent interpretive analysis of the rationale for the George W. Bush administration’s invasion of Iraq.”
“Powerfully argued and utterly persuasive, Wanting War offers the best account yet of the folly and miscalculation that resulted in America's heedless plunge into Iraq. In crisp, devastating prose, Jeffrey Record exposes the incoherence of the arguments offered to justify this unjustifiable and unnecessary war.”
“Why did Bush do it? The question Jeffrey Record tackles in this book is one of the most important of our time. You will learn much from reading this book, even if you don't agree with all his answers.”
"With his usual crystalline prose and piercing analysis, Jeffrey Record penetrates to the heart of the Bush administration's decision to invade Iraq, laying stark all of the flawed assumptions and logic. He demonstrates that the Iraq War has important antecedents in the Korean and Vietnam conflicts. The book is an invaluable contribution to our understanding of American national security policy."
“Record's book is the first work on this subject to move beyond the blame game to set the decision for war in a broader historical context.”
