Blurbs

Henry Farrell notes that Doug Feith’s blurbers seem to be damning him with faint praise. If, indeed, you can even call “It will certainly anger many readers because it takes a different position that most other accounts on the wisdom of going to war in Iraq, on what mistakes were made, and on what made them” praise at all. Contrast that with, say, Heads in the Sand which Fred Kaplan calls “a smart, vital book” and I think your choice in spring foreign policy reading is clear.
