The #1 New York Times bestseller that charts Americas dangerous drift into a state of perpetual war.

Written with bracing wit and intelligence, Rachel Maddows Drift argues that weve drifted away from Americas original ideals and become a nation weirdly at peace with perpetual war. To understand how weve arrived at such a dangerous place, Maddow takes us from the Vietnam War to todays war in Afghanistan, along the way exploring Reagans radical presidency, the disturbing rise of executive authority, the gradual outsourcing of our war-making capabilities to private companies, the plummeting percentage of American families whose children fight our constant wars for us, and even the changing fortunes of G.I. Joe. Ultimately, she shows us just how much we stand to lose by allowing the scope of American military power to overpower our political discourse.

Sensible yet provocative, dead serious yet seriously funny, Drift reinvigorates a loud and jangly political debate about our vast and confounding national security state.
